While building an Android java library project with Android Studio, a compiler error occurs: “android/asset_manager_jni.h: No such file or directory“. Java sources are in the main/java folder. C++ native sources are placed into the main/jni folder. When I try to compile the whole library without my custom Android.mk, there is no error! When using it, my own ndkbuild in the build.gradle fails with the above error. I searched for solutions but none helped me. Environment: MacBook, OS X: Yosemite, IDE: Android Studio 1.1.0. I installed the latest NDK android-ndk-r10d. What do I miss? (Project code was included).
