How to check if a JSON key exists?

So, I get some JSON values from the server but I don’t know if there will be a particular field or not.

So like:

{ "regatta_name":"ProbaRegatta",
  "country":"Congo",
  "status":"invited"
}

And sometimes, there will be an extra field like:

{ "regatta_name":"ProbaRegatta",
  "country":"Congo",
  "status":"invited",
  "club":"somevalue"
}

I would like to check if the field named “club” exists so that at parsing I won’t get

org.json.JSONException: No value for club

Answer

JSONObject class has a method named “has”:

http://developer.android.com/reference/org/json/JSONObject.html#has(java.lang.String)

Returns true if this object has a mapping for name. The mapping may be NULL.
