How to generate and parse data in JSON format in Android Android
JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight computer data interchange format. It is a text-based, human-readable format for representing simple data structures and associative arrays (called objects).

The JSON format is often used for transmitting structured data over a network connection in a process called serialization. JSON can be seen as an alternative to the traditional use of the XML format and is better and faster than XML.

Supported data types :

  1. Number (integer, real, or floating point)
  2. String (double-quoted Unicode with backslash escapement)
  3. Boolean (true and false)
  4. Array (an ordered sequence of values, comma-separated and enclosed in square brackets)
  5. Object (collection of key/value pairs, comma-separated and enclosed in curly brackets)
  6. Null



The following example shows the JSON representation of an object that describes a person. The object has string fields for first name , last name and age, contains a list of phone numbers (an array).





"age":"25 yrs",





In this article, we are going to see how we can generate an Array containing JSON objects and how to parse it. This article assumes that you have basic knowledge of java programming language and programming in Android too. The code here is pretty self explanatory and inline comments are provided where I felt are required to make the code easy to grasp. Full running project along with source is available to download from the link below. Any queries and suggestions are most welcome.
