Accessing Json array with Java

0 votes

I'm just getting started with using json with java. For instance, my json looks like this:

{
  "locations": {
    "record": [
      {
        "id": 8817,
        "loc": "NEW YORK CITY"
      },
      {
        "id": 2873,
        "loc": "UNITED STATES"
      },
      {
        "id": 1501
        "loc": "NEW YORK STATE"
      }
    ]
  }
}

my code:

JSONObject req = new JSONObject(join(loadStrings(data.json),""));
JSONObject locs = req.getJSONObject("locations");
JSONArray recs = locs.getJSONArray("record");

I have access to the "record" JSONArray at this point, but am unsure as to how I'd get the "id" and "loc" values within a for loop.

An org.json.JSONArray is not iterable.
Here's how I process elements in a net.sf.json.JSONArray:

    JSONArray lineItems = jsonObject.getJSONArray("lineItems");
    for (Object o : lineItems) {
        JSONObject jsonLineItem = (JSONObject) o;
        String key = jsonLineItem.getString("key");
        String value = jsonLineItem.getString("value");
        ...
    }

Works great... :)
