How to parse json string in android?

AndroidMobile DevelopmentApps/Applications

This example demonstrates How to parse JSON string in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:app = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:gravity = "center"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity">
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/text"
      android:textSize = "30sp"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken a text view to show the json element name.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;
import android.app.KeyguardManager;
import android.app.admin.DevicePolicyManager;
import android.content.Context;
import android.net.ConnectivityManager;
import android.net.Network;
import android.net.NetworkInfo;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Environment;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.KeyEvent;
import android.widget.TextView;
import org.json.JSONArray;
import org.json.JSONException;
import org.json.JSONObject;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView textView;
   String json = "{"
      + " \"geodata\": ["
      + " {"
      + " \"id\": \"1\","
      + " \"name\": \"Julie Sherman\","
      + " \"gender\" : \"female\","
      + " \"latitude\" : \"37.33774833333334\","
      + " \"longitude\" : \"-121.88670166666667\""
      + " },"
      + " ]"
      + "}";
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.N)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      textView = findViewById(R.id.text);
      try {
         final JSONObject obj = new JSONObject(json);
         final JSONArray geodata = obj.getJSONArray("geodata");
         final JSONObject person = geodata.getJSONObject(0);
         textView.setText(person.getString("name"));
      } catch (JSONException e) {
         e.printStackTrace();
      }
   }
   @Override
   protected void onStop() {
      super.onStop();
   }
   @Override
   protected void onResume() {
      super.onResume();
   }
}

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
