Any help/tutorial with creating web services that access a database

 I'm currently developing an application that needs to pull certain
data from a remote server (same server my website pulls from). After a
lot of research I see the best way to do this is to create a web
service, then call upon that service from my application.

If anyone could point me in the right direction on how to create a web
service such as this (ex. pulling certain fields and displaying them
in a listview), and how to access it via android (I've seen people
suggest SOAP, HTTPclient, REST, etc). Really in need for a simple
walkthrough, if possible. Any help is greatly appreciated!

1. how to reuse preference in xml

Hi All,

I understand we can reuse layouts with the xml <include> tag.

Can we reuse a preference in the same way ? For example, I have a
custom
seekbar preference that needs to be instantiated in different
preference xmls with same parameters.

The layout <include> did not work with preference in my tests.

Are there any special tags for preference reuse ?

Thanks in advance.

2. ADC2 acknowledgment of submission

Is there any kind of acknowledgement of submissions for ADC2?  I
submitted, but am of course nervous that something went wrong.  The
ADC home page doesn't give any kind of acknowledgement or record of
the submission or its state...
