How to parse .json file with a gradle task and get the json data from it?

Is there a way where in I can parse a xyz.json file with help of a gradle task and get all the individual json data inside it? for eg. I want to parse this data which is stored in a xyz.json file in my assets folder and get all the values inside it, eg. get the value of "type".

{
"type":"xyz",
"properties": {
"foo": {
"type": "pqr"
},
"bar": {
"type": "abc"
},
"baz": {
"type": "lmo"
}
}
}

Answer

You can create a gradle task like this

gradle myTask{
 doLast{
  def inputFile = new File("xyz.json")
  def json = new JsonSlurper().parseText(inputFile.text)
  def labels = json.properties.foo.type //This will return "pqr"
 }
}
