Annotations work on enums!

Here's a little quick tip about something that I think is a less well-known feature of Google's awesome GSON library: Parsing Java enums using annotations Assuming you receive a simple JSON response like this: {

A quiet interesting idea. However my implementation would be properly shorter. You just need to define all methods in your interface than your implementation just need to extend their real implementation, implements your interface and copy the constructors. So the implementation will just contain the constructors which pass all args to their super constructors.

I'm just wondering if it is possible to select the correct variant of your plugin based on the current gradle settings automatically.

Gradle Build System  - 
I'd like to append the Jenkins build number which I can grab via System.getenv("BUILD_NUMBER") to the app label of my dev builds.

Is this possible at all right now or do I need to wait until this is resolved:

I would imagine something like:
resValue "string", "app_name", "MyApp ${buildNumber}"

+Xavier Ducrohet, sorry to be more precise, I'd like to have the flavor dimensions in the app_name as well, like this:
MyApp ${flavorDimension1} ${flavorDimension2} ${buildNumber}

If I set resValue in the productFlavor closures it will be applied to both debug and release builds. I'd like to only modify the debug builds and keep release builds untouched.

- Amazing view from the 33rd floor (even if you don't get a window table) - Great, warm atmosphere (maybe a little bit too dark) - Friendly staff - Really tasty food (try out the roasted Peking duck with minced pork dumplings) - Price around £50 for a dinner for two

I'm a frequent guest at Zizzi's italian restaurant in the O2 centre. They've got a nice open kitchen, friendly staff and offer a variety of italian meals (beyond the typical pizza & pasta) at reasonable prices. I've never been disappointed so far. Try out the rustica-style pizzas, incredibly large size and tasty! :)

+ Very tasty and well topped pizzas + Large sizes + Reasonable prices (each pizza £10) - Self-ordering at the checkout - Payments are cash-only All in all I can recommend this place. Don't expect to have an intimate dining experience, it's usually lively and crowded in there. It's in Soho!

Best persian food in London! The lavash bread as well as the lamb fillet with rice is amazing. Great atmosphere and very friendly service/staff. Huge portions for reasonable prices. We'll definitely come back again.

I really don't understand the numerous poor to fair reviews for this restaurant. I've been there about 5 times so far and never been disappointed. If you don't like Mexican food, don't go there. If you do, try one of the sizzling meals, really tasty! The atmosphere is great with neat decor throughout. It is indeed a bit pricy, but hey, it's central London!
