Hi all, I have an eclipse ADT project that I need to make gradle-based. What would be the best way to approach this? Currently, I am having the following problems:

-When I try the import function in Android Studio, I get the following:


Since I did not make the project, I do not have it on an Eclipse workspace.

I tried importing it into Eclipse, and I got the message: "
I have an existing Eclipse ADT project that I am trying to import into Eclipse.

After importing the project, I am getting the error

"Project [name of my project] is missing the required Java library: 'library'"

Anyone have any idea what the best way to approach this would be?

May be this can help you.

There is a option in eclipse to export the gradle build file. Export -> export the gradle build file.

Once you will done this open you android studio. click on file than open eclipse project.

after that gradle will try to configure itself.

Make sure you are using the open internet connection. (gradle will download the dependencies online).
