Android Question

Get user image from Facebook Graph-API

I want to show the users profile picture in a list view.
When I try to call the graph-api from android to retrieve the image, I always get the following error.

java.io.IOException: Hostname <fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net> was not verified

This is the code used by me:

private static void retrieveProfilePicture(String userId) throws MalformedURLException, IOException{
facebook = FacebookHelper.getInstance();
Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
bundle.putString(Facebook.TOKEN, facebook.getAccessToken());
Object picture = facebook.request("/"+userId+"/picture", bundle, "GET");


When I do the same call in the browser (https://graph.facebook.com//picture?access_token=), then I get the image returned on a url like this
https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/...


In which format is the image delivered to me? JSON with a ref to image (url)?

Answer
 ImageView user_picture;
 userpicture=(ImageView)findViewById(R.id.userpicture);
 URL img_value = null;
 img_value = new URL("http://graph.facebook.com/"+id+"/picture?type=large");
 Bitmap mIcon1 = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(img_value.openConnection().getInputStream());
 userpicture.setImageBitmap(mIcon1);

Where ID is one your profile ID.
