How to read the complete output?

I have to parse this. I am storing the retreived url response in a buffer.But when I move the received buffer to a string I get a broken output and so I am unable to parse it. However when I print the variable

line
, I see the entire response is received. Is it some sort of buffer overflow for string? How can I parse the response, as it also contains a wrapper function and so I dont think I can even use the JSONReader!

Here is the code-

URL url = new URL("http://chartapi.finance.yahoo.com/instrument/1.0/FB/chartdata;type=quote;range=1d/json");
HttpURLConnection urlConnection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
try {
InputStream inputStream = new BufferedInputStream(urlConnection.getInputStream());
StringBuffer buffer = new StringBuffer();
if (inputStream == null) return;

reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(inputStream));

String line;
while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
//Log.d(TAG,line);
buffer.append(line + "\n");
}

Log.d(TAG,buffer.length() +buffer.toString());
}

Answer

Your code, without any System.out.println inside while is printing the content correctly (weird), link you passed seems JSON format BUT in the start of the file you have

finance_charts_json_callback(

which is not a part of a JSON string.


In order to get correct data, a fast workaround is ignore this characters AND the final parenthesis:

String jsonString = buffer.substring(30, buffer.length() - 2);
JsonObject jobj = new Gson().fromJson(jsonString, JsonObject.class);

Now you have a JSonObject, so you can refer it by attribute names:

System.out.println(jobj.get("Timestamp").toString());
System.out.println(jobj.get("labels").toString());
System.out.println(jobj.get("ranges").toString());
System.out.println(jobj.get("series").toString());
