Gson – Read and Parse JSON from URL

Gson – Read and Parse JSON from URL example shows how to read and parse JSON from a URL using the Gson library in Java.

How to parse JSON from a URL?

The Gson library provides methods to read and parse JSON in a variety of ways, including from a URL. The process of parsing JSON from URLs is almost the same as reading it from a file or from a string.

All we need to do is to read the URL using a reader, then use the fromJson method of the Gson class that accepts a reader object and parses the JSON from reading it.

Here is an example program that reads and parses a JSON from the World time API URL.


Now, instead of converting URL content to a JsonObject object, we can also convert it to a Java POJO using the same method.
