I have no idea, you have not clearly explained what exactly this
improved on-screen typing software will do...

Is it a new virtual keyboard? How does a user interact with it? What
functional advantages does it have over the standard (virtual) QWERTY

Perhaps you need to prototype something and get some decisive feedback
before you try to sell an implementation on the market, it sounds
useful but so far you have only defined the broad objectives of your

The existing virtual keyboard code should be available in the Android
source code, that might be a good starting point.

Hi All,
I want to implement Web services in Android application. There is lots

1. I had developed a service layer which will bring data from Mysql.
2. Service layer is deployed under Apache axis in tomcat server.
3. I already tested my web service application from simple Axis client
application. Please find the working client code below:
try {

              String endpointURL = "http://localhost:8080/axis/services/
              String  name = "EDUCATION";
              long a = 100;
              long b =0;
              Service service = new Service();
              Call   call  = (Call) service.createCall();

              call.setTargetEndpointAddress( new );
              call.setOperationName( new
"getAndUpdateSurveyDetails") );
              call.addParameter( "arg1", XMLType.XSD_STRING,
              call.addParameter( "arg2", XMLType.XSD_LONG, ParameterMode.IN);
              call.addParameter( "arg3", XMLType.XSD_LONG, ParameterMode.IN);
              //call.addParameter( "arg2", XMLType.XSD_INT,
call.setReturnType( org.apache.axis.encoding.XMLType.XSD_STRING );

              String ret = (String) call.invoke( new Object[] {name,a,b} );

              System.out.println("@@@@"+ret );
            } catch (Exception e) {
