Gradle sync failed with Android Studio 3.1: Uninitialized object exists on backward branch 70-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

After Updating Android Studio from 3.0 to 3.1 My project gradle syncing failed with the following error.

Gradle sync failed: Uninitialized object exists on backward branch 70 Exception Details: Location: 
com/android/build/gradle/tasks/BuildArtifactReportTask.newArtifact(Lcom/android/build/api/artifact/BuildableArtifact;)
Lcom/android/build/gradle/tasks/BuildArtifactReportTask$BuildableArtifactData;
How to solve:

As @tech_android already posted in this comment, to solve that problem permanently, go to Module Settings > SDK Location > Use embedded JDK.

This will remove dependency on the external Java installation by using the embedded JDK.

Remove dependency on the external JAVA installation by using the embedded JDK.

This is a bug of JDK old versions i guess. Go to the project structure and change your project to latest JDK like 1.80_72 or later versions.

Hopefully it will fix your problem.

It’s resolved my issue when I used embedded JDK(recommended) option

Do this:

Project Structure -> SDK Location -> Select “Use embedded JDK(recommended)”

###

1) Update to the latest JDK Version, in my case jdk1.8.0_162

2) In your Android Studio select File-> Project Structure -> SDK Location -> JDK Location, write the directory C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_162

3) Restart Android Studio

Problem Solved

###

Android Studio: 3.5.3
gradle plugin: 3.5.3
gradle: 5.4.1
platform: Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G103)

I had done this:Project Structure -> SDK Location -> Select “Use embedded JDK(recommended)”
but it still not working.

when I read this article,

you can add a property at gradle.properies:

org.gradle.java.home=(path to JDK home)

it works!
