Convert XML to JSON object in Android

I have an XML string as shown below:

<s:Envelope
xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><s:Body><Response
xmlns="http://tempuri.org/"><UserResult><Users xmlns=""><User>
<Message>Success</Message>
<UserId>213213213</UserId>
<FullName>Abc</FullName>
<Roles>
<Role>
<RoleId>23232333</RoleId>
<RoleName>Salesperson</RoleName>
</Role>
</Roles>
</User>
</Users>
</UserResult></Response>
</s:Body>
</s:Envelope>


Is it possible to convert XML to JSON?

Answer

You can try this way as well. I have tried and tested it myself.

Step 1 : Please Download the java-json.jar

Step 2: Add this to /libs folder of your project then add to build path.

Step 3: Then use it as follows

  • Imports to look for

    import org.json.JSONException;
    import org.json.JSONObject;
    import org.json.XML;
    
  • Sample string

    String sampleXml = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?>"
        + "<mobilegate>"    
    +"<timestamp>232423423423</timestamp>"                          
    + "<txn>" + "Transaction" + "</txn>" 
    + "<amt>" + 0 + "</amt>" 
    + "</mobilegate>"; 
    
  • Json String

    JSONObject jsonObj = null;
    try {
        jsonObj = XML.toJSONObject(sampleXml);
    } catch (JSONException e) {
        Log.e("JSON exception", e.getMessage());
        e.printStackTrace();
    } 
    
    Log.d("XML", sampleXml);
    
    Log.d("JSON", jsonObj.toString());
    

Output:

XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><mobilegate><timestamp>232423423423</timestamp><txn>Transaction</txn><amt>0</amt></mobilegate>

JSON :

{"mobilegate":{"timestamp":232423423423,"amt":0,"txn":"Transaction"}}
