JSON Parsing


If you’re a beginner for making RestAPIs for clients, first I will recommend my first tutorial Rest APIs Part-1. In this tutorial, I will show to

  1. How to receive values from clients?
  2. How to validate values?
  3. How to insert values into the database?
  4. How to fetch values from database?
  5. How to send data to clients?

I have a database called db_location. In this database, I have a table called tbl_loc. I have four column in my table. Now I am creating RestAPIs e.g

	$servername = "localhost";
	$username = "root";
	$password = "";
	$db_name = "db_location";

	// Create connection
	$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password,$db_name);

	// Check connection
	if ($conn->connect_error) {
		outputErrorResponse(405,'Connection failed:');

	$lat = isset($_POST['lat'])?$_POST['lat']:'';
	$lng = isset($_POST['lng'])?$_POST['lng']:'';
	$loc_name = isset($_POST['loc_name'])?$_POST['loc_name']:'';

		outputErrorResponse(422,'latitude is missing');

		outputErrorResponse(422,'Longitude is missing');

		outputErrorResponse(422,'location name is missing');

	// insert data into table

	$sql = 'insert into tbl_loc(lat,lng,loc_name)values("'.$lat.'","'.$lng.'","'.$loc_name.'")';

	// reterived data from table

	$fetch_sql = 'select * from tbl_loc';
	$result = $conn->query($fetch_sql);
	if($result->num_rows == 0){
		outputErrorResponse(404,'No data found');
		$data = array();
		while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()){
			$data[] = $row;

		$output['data'] = $data;

		echo json_encode($data);


	function outputErrorResponse($code, $msg){
		$data = array('coce'=> $code,
					'message' => $msg);
		echo json_encode($data);



The output response will have like this
