Send JSON object via HttpPost method

by Wayne Wenthin » Wed, 09 Sep 2009 05:39:03 GMT

 A snippet for what I do...
public HttpResponse updateGirl(String url, Pawn girl, int pawnID) {
HttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
HttpPut httpput = new HttpPut(url);

// Execute the request

try {
List<NameValuePair> nameValuePairs = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>(
nameValuePairs.add(new BasicNameValuePair("id", Integer
......  Many nameValuePairs later.....

httpput.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nameValuePairs,
 HttpResponse response = httpclient.execute(httpput);
return response;

} catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
// e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
return null;


Hope that helps.   I struggled with it for a couple of weeks before I found
a site that had a good source.

Writing code is one of few things
that teaches me I don't know everything.

Send JSON object via HttpPost method

 ey Wayne, thanks a lot..
I have also got a solution parallely which i would like to post

URL url = new URL(serverURL);

// open the conncetion
HttpURLConnection connection =

// Let the run-time system (RTS) know that we want input.
// Let the RTS know that we want to do output
// No caching, we want the real thing
// set the content type property

// set request method
// create the post body to send
String content = credDevPair.toString();
Log.i("Request ====....... ",content);
DataOutputStream printout = new DataOutputStream (
connection.getOutputStream () );

// send the data
String output =
Log.i("Response 1....... ",output);
// A Simple JSONObject Creation
JSONObject json=new JSONObject(output);


// A Simple JSONObject Parsing
JSONArray nameArray=json.names();
JSONArray valArray=json.toJSONArray(nameArray);
for(int i=0; i<valArray.length() ;i++)


//BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader ( new
InputStreamReader(connection.getInputStream()) );

}catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
}catch (IOException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block

}catch(Exception ex)


private static String convertStreamToString(InputStream is) {
* To convert the InputStream to String we use the
* method. We iterate until the BufferedReader return null which
* there's no more data to read. Each line will appended to a
* and returned as String.
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

String line = null;
try {
while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
sb.append(line + "\n");
} catch (IOException e) {
} finally {
try {
} catch (IOException e) {

return sb.toString();

Send JSON object via HttpPost method

 ep that is what I vaguely based mine on.   I recognize the Praeda line.   I
had to modify mine because I was not sending back an array of json objects
but a specific one that I handle based on the ID on the backend with ruby.

1. android screen orientation

I find after cupcake release, video player eventually rotates and resizes
pixels to fit the LCD screen in landscape. I use the same java code of video
player so I guess there are some changes elsewhere to make rotation and
stretch a default behavior... This feature does not exist as I remember
previously. Anybody knows how to make the application work as it used to be,
that is, not rotated and stretched to fit the screen?



2. Read package name from AndroidManifest.xml at runtime?

Could you explain more what you are doing?  If you are doing an about box
for yourself, you either already know your package name or you can use
Context.getPackageName() to find the one you are using.

I guess you could open your AndroidManifest.xml using the AssetManager and
parse it, but there really should be no call for this.
