JSON Parser in listview in ListFragment

Is it possible to have a JSON Parser inside a ListFragment?

I've searched the web for hours.  When I run my app, and click on the tab to view the list view, the app crashes.

public class FragmentsTab3 extends ListFragment implements ActionBar.TabListener {
...
JSONParser jParser = new JSONParser();
	        
	        //getting JSON string from URL
	        posts = jParser.getJSONFromUrlToArray(url);

for(int i = 0; i < posts.length(); i++){                        
				    HashMap<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();    
				    JSONObject e = posts.getJSONObject(i);

				    map.put(TAG_TITLE, e.getString(TAG_TITLE));
				    map.put(TAG_VIEWS, e.getString(TAG_VIEWS) + " views");
				    
				    levelList.add(map);            
				}

There is no general reason why you couldnt use JSON here. But we need stack trace of the error to see whats wrong. Can you post that?

It doesnt look like JSON error - it states that you have a problem with a Fragment:

.... Fragment FragmentsTab3{40dae140} not attached to Activity....

Can you post the complete code?

I still get an error.  I tried to start over with the slide tab template and I still get the same crashing and error.  Is there an example of a listfragment and json that works?  If I use a static array for my listview it works fine.  If i use json on a list activity it works fine.  list fragment crashes.
