I'm trying to perform a HTTP request and to read the answer.

My first idea was to import*; and to use :

URL url = new URL(myUrl);
String answer = (String)url.getContent(); // !!!  produce an error in
Android !

After some research in the group, I am confused on what should I do.
Should I use :

org.apache.http                                         or
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpClient         // <--- is it
officially supported by android?

and how to implement it?

Thank you for your help.

Try this: 

Also, make sure you have the INTERNET permission declared in your
AndroidManifest.xml file.

Android currently incorporates org.apache.http.*. Previously, it used an
earlier version of the Apache code which was in the
org.apache.commons.httpclient.* namespace.

Examples of using org.apache.http.* can be found at:

Saya pengguna IM3, belakangan ini kalo dapet telepon dari Simpati atau AS

langsung ditelpon/sms balik... Error kalo dicoba ditelpon. Ada yang ngalamin
hal yang sama?

Eh, ini OOT gak yah? HH-nya pake Android sih. *maksa


2. Displaying Equations on Android

I am currently working on an application that is essentially an
equation "cheat sheet." I want to make the equations look good when
they are displayed, so I am thinking of using MathML, but I don't know
how I would implement this and include everything in a packaged
application. Any advice on how to do this? Or other suggestions for
displaying equations on Android?
