Downloading a file after http-get and http-post.

 Hi there,

i am building an application which at some point sends a http-get to a
webserver and the webserver responds with a .zip file to download.
The same with a http-post. In a browser after clicking submit (post) or the
link (get)
it asks me where i should download the .zip file.

I want my android app to automatically download the file:
In the case of the post i build a name-value-pair and use execute the built

 httppost.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvp));
 HttpResponse httpresponse = httpclient.execute(httppost);
 HttpEntity entity = httpresponse.getEntity();

How can i download the .zip file with which the webserver responds.

Can someone point me in the right direction, or perhaps give me an example
how to download files in android?

Kind regards,

Robin van Leeuwen

Please help cause I'm pulling my hair out over here. How can lookup
the Person based on the info in CallLog.Calls? I've tried matching
Phones.NUMBER to Calls.NUMBER, I've played a little bit with
Phones.NUMBER_KEY (what is the normalized format btw?) and I even
tried doing a LIKE search while replacing any non-numeric character
with a %. I've had no luck actually looking up people based on CallLog
