Convert a string to a JSON object in Java
There is so much material out on the internet that I spent hours researching this.
Every single answer I found was not descriptive enough, and it seemed as though the only option there was to use the gson library
Here’s a very simple approach to convert a String to a JSON object without the need to download additional libraries
JSONObject o = JSONObject.parse(yourJSONString.toString());
AND BAM!! That did the trick
