When I attempt to build the project with the addition of apply plugin: 'androidannotations I get the following failure: $ gradle clean FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. * What went wrong: Main Manifest missing from /tmp/RunTest/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml Note(1): I want to maintain the generic android project structure.
