Is there any way by which I will be able to retrieve values


java.lang.ClassCastException: java.util.HashMap cannot be cast to java.lang.String

This line is the problem

String  itemValue = (String) l.getItemAtPosition(position); 

Change to

l.setOnItemClickListener(new OnItemClickListener() {
public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view,int position, long id) {

HashMap<String,String> map =(HashMap<String,String>)l.getItemAtPosition(position);
String value = map.get(TAG_SUCCESS);
Sting products = map.get(TAG_PRODUCTS);
String name= map.get(TAG_NAME);
... // rest of the code
