Hello,
Have you all have a great day. I am new to JSON and I try to use it in my first project.
I have a question regarding the getString method in JSON which I try to get your help.

I am using net.sf.json library and my json object looks like the following :




I have a question that I would like to ask relating to an element called "geocode" which exists on my second record but it does not exist on my first record; so it gives me an error when I search for it in the following code :




and the error message was :



My goal is to be able to get "geocode" since it appears in some of my record but not all ; but i don't know yet on how to approach it.

I would like to seek your helps and expertise if you know how to handle it.

Thanks so much in advance for all of your help.

Bill

Hi,
A quick look at the javadocs for the library seems to say that there is an alternative method optString() which you can use. You can look at http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/apidocs/net/sf/json/JSONObject.html#optString(java.lang.String)

Hope that helps.
