This is true for Windows (zxing-zxing-3.4.1.zip) and Linux/cygwin (zxing-zxing-3.4.1.tar.gz) packages and "git clone https://github.com/zxing/zxing/" (Version 3.4.2-SNAPSHOT).

You didn't activate the Android profile in the build - it will activate if ANDROID_HOME is set

"set" prints the following environment variable in Linux/cygwin:
[...]
ANDROID_HOME='C:\Users\Helmut\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk'
[...]
In Windows:
[...]
ANDROID_HOME=C:\Users\Helmut\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk
[...]
"mvn install" works fine...

Are you building from master or another tag? Still works ok for me but I'm on Linux.

I do not command another tag so it should be master.
