JSON Question

Parsing JSON string in Java

I am trying to parse a JSON string in java to have the individual value printed separately. But while making the program run I get the following error-

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Stub!
at org.json.JSONObject.<init>(JSONObject.java:7)
at ShowActivity.main(ShowActivity.java:29)


My Class looks like-

import org.json.JSONException;
import org.json.JSONObject;

public class ShowActivity {
private final static String jString = "{"
+ " \"geodata\": ["
+ " {"
+ " \"id\": \"1\","
+ " \"name\": \"Julie Sherman\","
+ " \"gender\" : \"female\","
+ " \"latitude\" : \"37.33774833333334\","
+ " \"longitude\" : \"-121.88670166666667\""
+ " }"
+ " },"
+ " {"
+ " \"id\": \"2\","
+ " \"name\": \"Johnny Depp\","
+ " \"gender\" : \"male\","
+ " \"latitude\" : \"37.336453\","
+ " \"longitude\" : \"-121.884985\""
+ " }"
+ " }"
+ " ]"
+ "}";
private static JSONObject jObject = null;

public static void main(String[] args) throws JSONException {
jObject = new JSONObject(jString);
JSONObject geoObject = jObject.getJSONObject("geodata");

String geoId = geoObject.getString("id");
System.out.println(geoId);

String name = geoObject.getString("name");
System.out.println(name);

String gender=geoObject.getString("gender");
System.out.println(gender);

String lat=geoObject.getString("latitude");
System.out.println(lat);

String longit =geoObject.getString("longitude");
System.out.println(longit);
}
}


Let me know what is it I am missing, or the reason why I do get that error everytime I run the application. Any comments would be appreciated.

Answer

See my comment. You need to include the full org.json library when running as android.jar only contains stubs to compile against.

In addition, you must remove the two instances of extra } in your JSON data following longitude.

   private final static String JSON_DATA =
     "{" 
   + "  \"geodata\": [" 
   + "    {" 
   + "      \"id\": \"1\"," 
   + "      \"name\": \"Julie Sherman\","                  
   + "      \"gender\" : \"female\"," 
   + "      \"latitude\" : \"37.33774833333334\"," 
   + "      \"longitude\" : \"-121.88670166666667\""
   + "    }," 
   + "    {" 
   + "      \"id\": \"2\"," 
   + "      \"name\": \"Johnny Depp\","          
   + "      \"gender\" : \"male\"," 
   + "      \"latitude\" : \"37.336453\"," 
   + "      \"longitude\" : \"-121.884985\""
   + "    }" 
   + "  ]" 
   + "}"; 

Apart from that, geodata is in fact not a JSONObject but a JSONArray.

Here is the fully working and tested corrected code:

import org.json.JSONArray;
import org.json.JSONException;
import org.json.JSONObject;

public class ShowActivity {


  private final static String JSON_DATA =
     "{" 
   + "  \"geodata\": [" 
   + "    {" 
   + "      \"id\": \"1\"," 
   + "      \"name\": \"Julie Sherman\","                  
   + "      \"gender\" : \"female\"," 
   + "      \"latitude\" : \"37.33774833333334\"," 
   + "      \"longitude\" : \"-121.88670166666667\""
   + "    }," 
   + "    {" 
   + "      \"id\": \"2\"," 
   + "      \"name\": \"Johnny Depp\","          
   + "      \"gender\" : \"male\"," 
   + "      \"latitude\" : \"37.336453\"," 
   + "      \"longitude\" : \"-121.884985\""
   + "    }" 
   + "  ]" 
   + "}"; 

  public static void main(final String[] argv) throws JSONException {
    final JSONObject obj = new JSONObject(JSON_DATA);
    final JSONArray geodata = obj.getJSONArray("geodata");
    final int n = geodata.length();
    for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
      final JSONObject person = geodata.getJSONObject(i);
      System.out.println(person.getInt("id"));
      System.out.println(person.getString("name"));
      System.out.println(person.getString("gender"));
      System.out.println(person.getDouble("latitude"));
      System.out.println(person.getDouble("longitude"));
    }
  }
}

Here's the output:

C:\dev\scrap>java -cp json.jar;. ShowActivity
1
Julie Sherman

37.33774833333334
-121.88670166666667
