AndroidJUnit4.class is deprecated: How to use androidx.test.ext.junit.runners.AndroidJUnit4?

  • A+

For my instrumentation tests I was using



import androidx.test.runner.AndroidJUnit4; 

in order to establish my test cases. Now this line gets marked as deprecated with the hint to use AndroidJUnit4 from

import androidx.test.ext.junit.runners.AndroidJUnit4 

However if I try to import AndroidJUnit4 from the named package I get the error, that ext can not be resolved.

Do you have an idea, what package should be included in gradle to resolve this issue?


I added the following line to my gradle file:

androidTestImplementation 'androidx.test.ext:junit:1.0.0-beta02' 

Now everything is working again now.
