how to remove specific letters from string using java

Hi Experts,

the below line i am getting as a response from webservice call and its return type is string

"{"total":{"total":"0"},"result":{"p1":"0","p2":"0","p3":"0","p4":"0","p5":"0"}}"

the above value i am getting as a string
from that string
i have to display output as below
"{"total":"0","result":{"p1":"0","p2":"0","p3":"0","p4":"0","p5":"0"}}"

i have to remove "total": and { } braces
how to do

some times total might have a value
example:
"{"total":{"total":"213"},"result":{"p1":"0","p2":"0","p3":"0","p4":"0","p5":"0"}}"
"{"total":{"total":"1"},"result":{"p1":"0","p2":"0","p3":"0","p4":"0","p5":"0"}}"

can some one suggest how do i remove it.

if it is confusing with quotation provide solution with out using quotation
"{total:{total:1},result:{p1:0,p2:0,p3:0,p4:0,p5:0}}"
expected o/p:
"{total:100,result:{p1:0,p2:0,p3:0,p4:0,p5:0}}"

Do not use string manipulation here.
Convert it to a json object using a json library such as gson.

While I agree with gurps that it would be advised to convert to object view and then manipulate, it also maybe overkill. And if you are happy that you are coding this to conform to this one very specific case, and that if something even very minor changes in what you receive that your code will likely break, then you could do something like this...

result = result.replaceFirst("\\{\"total\":(\"\\d+\")}", "$1");
