Integration of GreenDao with Retrofit… here is a solution to the problem.

Integration of GreenDao with Retrofit

I was looking for a solution that would allow me to combine work retrofit and GreenDao.

Here is my code and it doesn’t work.

Post is a class generated by the greenDao generator

EDIT: The run of this code returns “retrofit. RetrofitError: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Expected BEGIN_ARRAY but be BEGIN_OBJECT at line 1 column 2 path $

public static void test() {
    RestAdapter restAdapter = new RestAdapter.Builder()

PostsInterface postsInterface = restAdapter.create(PostsInterface.class);

Callback<List<Post>> callback = new Callback<List<Post>>() {
        public void success(List<Post> posts, Response response) {
            Log.d(TAG, response.toString());

        public void failure(RetrofitError error) {
            Log.d(TAG, error.toString());

postsInterface.getPosts(0, 10, callback);

public interface PostsInterface {
    void getPosts(@Query("start") int limit, @Query("count") int offset, Callback<List<Post>> callback);


It looks like the request returns a JSON object instead of a JSON array. Make sure that the server actually returns a list of Post, and that your Post object does not expect named fields as arrays when the Post from the server contains ordinary objects with the same name.
