Retrofit 2 beta-4. Android 6. Unable to create convertor

How to fix it?

Process: www.palchiki.com.palchiki, PID: 2047
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unable to create converter for class www.palchiki.com.palchiki.model.ServiceResponse
for method APIWebService.getServices
at retrofit2.Utils.methodError(Utils.java:154)

at android.support.v4.app.Fragment.performCreateView(Fragment.java:1962)


I use com.squareup.retrofit2:retrofit:2.0.0-beta4 and com.squareup.retrofit2:converter-gson:2.0.0-beta4

Adapter

Retrofit retrofit = new Retrofit.Builder()
.baseUrl(URLWebService)
.addConverterFactory(GsonConverterFactory.create())
.client(okHttpClient)
.build();


Interface

@GET("/integration.php?command=getServices")
Call<ServiceResponse> getServices(@Query("city") String cityId);

Answer

You have to specify a Converter for the class ServiceResponse in order for gson to serialize/deserialize your class effectively it would go like this

GsonBuilder builder = new GsonBuilder();
builder.registerTypeAdapter(ServiceResponse.class, new ServiceResponseJson());
Gson gson = builder.build();

later on, you ll have to provide this gson instance to your gson converter factory like this

....addConverterFactory(GsonConverterFactory.create(gson))

ServiceResponseJson will have to implement JsonDeserializer and/or JsonSerializer
