API not returning formats other than JSON?



I’m trying to export my (sandbox) surveyresponses via V4 API.

If I submit this, it works fine:


If I submit this (xml or csv), 


I get the following error:

Exception in thread “main” org.json.JSONException: A JSONObject text must begin with ‘{‘ at 1 [character 2 line 1]
at org.json.JSONTokener.syntaxError(JSONTokener.java:432)
at org.json.JSONObject.<init>(JSONObject.java:185)
at org.json.JSONObject.<init>(JSONObject.java:311)
at com.firstlink.utility.rest.GizmoInterface.resourceRead(GizmoInterface.java:53)
at com.firstlink.utility.client.GizmoClient.main(GizmoClient.java:81)

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

      • Thanks, Bri.
        My bad .. A hidden little function was trying to load the result into a json object. Your API works perfectly.
        Thanks very much for your help.

        • Thanks for following up Jeff and Eric. I’m sure “perfectly” is a little generous 😉
