HI

I get the following error when i attempt to log into my local emulator ever since i rebuilt my laptop (no code change has been made):

String cannot be converted to JSONObject

When i go into dubug mode in Eclipse the excetion gets caught here:

public JSONObject getJSONFromUrl(String url, List<NameValuePair> params) {

            // Making HTTP request
            try {
                  // defaultHttpClient
                  DefaultHttpClient httpClient = new DefaultHttpClient();
                  HttpPost httpPost = new HttpPost(url);
                  httpPost.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(params));

                  HttpResponse httpResponse = httpClient.execute(httpPost);
                  HttpEntity httpEntity = httpResponse.getEntity();
                  is = httpEntity.getContent();

            } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            } catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            } catch (IOException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            }

            try {
                  BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
                              is, "iso-8859-1"), 8);
                  StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
                  String line = null;
                  while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
                        sb.append(line + "\n");
                  }
                  is.close();
                  json = sb.toString();
                  Log.e("JSON", json);
            } catch (Exception e) {
                  Log.e("Buffer Error", "Error converting result " + e.toString());
            }

I can see whatever string i enter being passed to the REST service a response returned and then validated throughout the login cycle.

It must be something environmental as it was working before i rebuilt laptop but once i set back up again on laptop with no code change made, the error started occurring.
Can anyone explain what it happening?

Note:
No change has been made to the REST service, java code or database prior to or after the rebuild

heres the DB_Functions PHP that gets called when hitting the logon button

<?php

class DB_Functions {

    private $db;

    //put your code here
    // constructor
    function __construct() {
        require_once 'DB_Connect.php';
        // connecting to database
        $this->db = new DB_Connect();
        $this->db->connect();
    }

    // destructor
    function __destruct() {
       
    }


    /**
     * Get user by email and password
     */
    public function getUserByEmailAndPassword($email, $password) {
        $result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE email = '$email'") or die(mysql_error());
        // check for result
        $no_of_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
        if ($no_of_rows > 0) {
            $result = mysql_fetch_array($result);
            $salt = $result['salt'];
            $encrypted_password = $result['encrypted_password'];
            $hash = $this->checkhashSSHA($salt, $password);
            // check for password equality
            if ($encrypted_password == $hash) {
                // user authentication details are correct
                return $result;
            }
        } else {
            // user not found
            return false;
        }
    }

    /**
     * Check user is existed or not
     */
    public function isUserExisted($email) {
        $result = mysql_query("SELECT email from users WHERE email = '$email'");
        $no_of_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
        if ($no_of_rows > 0) {
            // user existed
            return true;
        } else {
            // user not existed
            return false;
        }
    }

Your logger is not configured (or rather being called) in such a way as it shows the whole stack trace. It should be

Well i don't do Android. You need to find out how to get the logger to print a stack trace. Check the API docs
