            JSONObject jobject=jform.getForm(My_FormID);

    HashMap<String, String> prop=new HashMap<String,String>();
    prop.put("text","how is this form??");

    System.out.println(jform.createFormQuestion(43438914877469l, prop));


    But I am getting following response:

    It is nice to hear that you are using our API to build upon. I would however ask you to ask this on our developers forum instead.

    You will be able to see the issues others had and how they resolved it as well.

    This forum is intended for support for our online JotForm Builder.

    Best Regards,
