Android javax.annotation.processing Package missing

I would like to do some annotation processing based on the example in the following link: http://www.zdnetasia.com/writing-and-processing-custom-annotations-part-3-39362483.htm.

However, I would like to implement this in my Android project, and it seems I cannot use the package with the android platform. Do I need to add an external jar or is there something I'm missing?

Thanks.

Answer

The javax.annotation.processing package is not included in Android, but the Android VM team describes how to include extra javax packages here - it might be applicable to your question.
