androidjsonmysqlphp

I m trying to do a registration page from an android activity connectiong the datas to my sqldatabase, I m getting this error " org.json.JSONException: Value

First of all, could anyone advise me on how to debug my program when using an mysql database with php script for an android application ? Cause I usually use the log cat but here the errors aren't as clear :S …

Here is the activity code :

public class Subscribe extends Activity {

    Button bSubscribe;
    EditText etPwdSub, etPwdConf, etLoginSub, etNameSub, etFnSub;
    String result = null;
    InputStream is = null;
    String donnees = "";

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        setContentView(R.layout.subscribe);

        etLoginSub = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etLoginSub);
        etPwdSub = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etPwdSub);
        etPwdConf = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etPwdConf);
        etNameSub = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etNameSub);
        etFnSub = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etFnSub);

        bSubscribe = (Button) findViewById(R.id.bSubscribe);        
        bSubscribe.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

            public void onClick(View v) {

                Pattern p = Pattern.compile(".+@.+\\.[a-z]+");
                Matcher m = p.matcher(etLoginSub.getEditableText());

                if (m.matches() == false) {

                    Toast.makeText(
                            getBaseContext(),

                            Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                } else {

                    // autre méthode : etPwdSub.equals("")
                    if (etPwdSub.getEditableText() != null

Best Solution

Your request to http://192.168.1.101/spotnshare/subscribe.php is failing and returning a non-JSON string (probably a PHP error). You can print out the value with a

Log.i("tagconvertstr", "["+result+"]");

before the new JSONObject call to see what you're getting before parsing it.

EDIT: if you are using Eclipse you can set a break point and step through to see what's going on.
