Help Modifying Servlet Please

Hello I am getting a couple of errors, all because I changed the servlet to include three strings instead of 1.

I changed the string name videoName to as follows:

String videoName1
String videoName2
String videoName3

What is happening now is that I am getting errors on the following two lines.

videoName = item.getString();


"{\"name\":\"" + videoName + "\", " +

how can I modify my code to make sure it gets all the videos (1-3)

Thanks, Michele

That is because there in no variable named "videoName" in your code now.

Why are you creating JSON in strings rather than using one of the many JSON libraries such as Gson or Jackson?
