Hi,

would somebody have a small JSON based example to share that would help in getting started with using JSON to retrieve and display data from MyFxBook?

Just a very basic one to help understand the structure of the way it's done, so e.g. have a login, retrieve something from MyFxBook and then writing that to the browser/display.

That would great!

Thanks,
M

Sure, here you go:

This is in Java.

public Session getData(String username, String password) throws MalformedURLException, IOException{
Gson json = null;
URL url = null;
Session session = null;
                String myfxbook= 'https://www.myfxbook.com/api/login.json?';


URL url = new URL(myfxbook + 'email=' + username + '&password=' + password);

InputStream is = url.openStream();
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is));

json = new GsonBuilder().setPrettyPrinting().create();

session = json.fromJson(reader, Session.class); //puts the json into a bean



return session;
}
