Hi I have make a request to the server and I have got the next answer

Now from my code I need extract the value of the access_token, I have this code:

where res is a string with the data. What way could I have only the access_token?

Many Thanks

You can use split method of String class. That would be helpful..

Is that response JSON? It looks like it. If it is, the easiest way of parsing it is going to be to use a JSON library.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
