 Hi all,

I need to call a servlet from my android app and send/receive some
data (using post method). I don't know how to do it and reading the
API doesn't help me very much. Do u know any solution or have any idea
how to do it?

I've searched this group before writing and there are some solutions
but with the older version of API.

Any ideas, samples or suggestions?

If you use HttpURLConnection, it works the same as in "regular Java": 

If you use org.apache.http.*, there is documentation and examples at:

 Yes that is a wonderful feature of Android, in that much of the
backend functionality is the same as 'regular' java. You can even
stream objects back and forth to servlets, no need for chossy xml/soap
type web data services.

2. Make a call by sending/receiving the audio to/from a network stream

Hi all,

I'm doing a feasibility study for developing an Android application
capable of doing the following:

1. Make or receive 3G phone calls (but it can also use the native
2. Forward the incoming audio data to a network stream via wifi
3. Acquire the outgoing audio data from a wifi network stream and send
it into the mic input
4. Be as fast as possible in doing the audio forwarding, in order to
minimize the call delay.

I've done some hypothesis on how to deal with the incoming audio, but
I have no idea on how I can send the outgoing data (the voice uplink)
into the mic input of the audio mixer.

For the incoming audio I was thinking I could record the voice
downlink and save the recorded AMR data to a network socket, but I
don't know how efficient this could be since it depends on how the
platform will handle the data buffering, btw in this case I think I
can still use the native dialer.

Does anyone have suggestions on this topic?

Thanks in advance.
