I'm learning to program Java using Android Studio Beta version 0.8.14.

I need to parse a JSON string into it's values.  The string is called "result" and it contains:

{"name":"JSON Example","version":"Simple Version"} 

Open in new window

Need simple code to turn that into two variables: strName and strVersion

Can you please provide code (and imports) to do that?

Thanks,
Jason

Think I answered my own question.  Code is:
JSONObject jObj = new JSONObject(result);
String strName = jObj.getString("name");
String strVersion = jObj.getString("version");
tvwOutput.setText(strName + ": " + strVersion);

Open in new window
