type java.lang.String cannot be converted to JSONObject

I have a java String variable newTempTT which holds the following:

myObject = {"VehicleID":"KL-9876","VehicleType":"Nissan","VehicleOwner":"Sanjiva"}

I would like to add this into a json object so i performed the following line of code:

JSONObject jObject = new JSONObject(newTempTT);

There is no error message but when i run the program it says

"of type java.lang.String cannot be converted to JSONObject"

What changes do I need to make in order to convert this string to a JSONObject. Thanks in advance.


Include escape characters like this for every double quotes.

 String newTempTT = "myObject = {\"VehicleID\":\"KL-9876\",\"VehicleType\":\"Nissan\",\"VehicleOwner\":\"Sanjiva\"}";

JSONObject jObject = new JSONObject(newTempTT);

From the javadoc:

    Parameters: source - `A string beginning with { (left brace) and ending with } (right brace).` 
    JSONException - If there is a syntax error in the source string or a duplicated key.

Check if you are following this currently.

You seem to be encoding things to JSON yourself. Don't do this, let the library do it for you.
