how to parse JSONArray in android

The Solution to how to parse JSONArray in android is


If you're after the 'name', why does your code snippet look like an attempt to get the 'characters'?

Anyways, this is no different from any other list- or array-like operation: you just need to iterate over the dataset and grab the information you're interested in. Retrieving all the names should look somewhat like this:

List<String> allNames = new ArrayList<String>();

JSONArray cast = jsonResponse.getJSONArray("abridged_cast");
for (int i=0; i<cast.length(); i++) {
    JSONObject actor = cast.getJSONObject(i);
    String name = actor.getString("name");
    allNames.add(name);
}

(typed straight into the browser, so not tested).
