 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. Problem with OpenGL ES application,please help

Hi there,

I am currently trying to develop a game for android in OpenGL
ES....and I am testing it on my Nexus One. But I have run into some
performance problems,and I would like to ask somebody about it,could
you help?

I currently have a very basic scene - background made of 25
tiles(256x256 texture each), and then a number of textured
cubes(128x128 texture for each side of a cube ). However,when I try to
display approx. more than 10 cubes, the performance becomes so
sluggish that I can't even rotate the scene smoothly. I can't imagine
how can I add more objects(player,enemies, all that kind of stuff)
when it runs so slowly with 35 objects in total. I mean - games like
Raging Thunder 2 probably display hundreds of objects at once(plus
they do lots of computations behind the scenes) and they run super-
smooth on my nexus one. What am I doing wrong? Could somebody help me


2. Testing the speed and quality of service of a connection

Dear all,
I am looking for an open source app or code snippet to measure the speed (in 
both directions) and quality of service (delay, jitter and packet loss; 
probably via ping) of a connection for academic purposes.
Is anybody aware of such apps, open source projects or code snippets ?
Thanks in advance,
