Gradle compiles provided jar files

Source –

The Zebra EMDK provides it’s own Android SDK, therefore I have to add an external lib to my plugin.

I put the necessary jar file into the libs folder of my plugin (/libs/com.symbol.emdk.jar) and added the dependencies to my include.gradle file

dependencies {
  provided files('libs/com.symbol.emdk.jar')
  compile fileTree(exclude: ['libs/com.symbol.emdk.jar'],include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')

On tns run android it seems that the jar file gets compiled. I see the following errors in the log file:

Skip com.symbol.emdk.simulscan.SimulScanConfig
Error: java.lang.NullPointerException
Skip com.symbol.emdk.simulscan.SimulScanManager
Error: java.lang.NullPointerException
Skip com.symbol.emdk.simulscan.SimulScanMultiTemplate
Error: java.lang.NullPointerException
Skip com.symbol.emdk.simulscan.SimulScanReader
Error: java.lang.NullPointerException
Skip com.symbol.emdk.simulscan.SimulScanReaderInfo
Error: java.lang.NullPointerException

Due to the missing/skipped classes the app crashes if I want to use the external lib.
