 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!
