Gradle build error: SAXParseException

on building the app, i get following error:

Error:org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 0; columnNumber: 0; 
cvc-pattern-valid: Value 'build-tools;23.0.0 rc3' 
is not facet-valid with respect to pattern '[a-zA-Z0-9_-;.]+' for type 'segmentListType'.

build.gradle of module level gradle:

    apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "ms.demo.map"
        minSdkVersion 9
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-maps:8.4.0'
}

The error remains even after cleaning the app. The structure of package does not match the applicationId described in gradle file. I am using latest version of Android Studio (2.0 Preview 9).

Answer

The error itself clearly explains what is wrong here: is not facet-valid with respect to pattern '[a-zA-Z0-9_-;.]+' for type 'segmentListType'.

Just remove the space before apply plugin: 'com.android.application' and rebuild the project again.
