    Building an Android web client

    It looks like you're wanting an Android client to interact with your website. You can do the job with some mixed Java/PHP code.

    1 On the server you need an AJAX-style handler that will decode an HTTP request, do something with it and send back a plain text response using print.

    2 On the phone you need to build your GUI and get it ready to make queries and present the data that comes back.

    3 Also on the phone you need a worker class that takes queries from the GUI and builds an HTTP request. It sends off the request and waits for a response. Then it decodes what it sees and calls back to the GUI to do something appropriate. I have sample code that does this if you need it.

    You'll want to devise a simple "language" that suits the needs of all the different things that have to be done. Such as sending in a login request or asking for a particular database record. I do it with a single word command/request keyword, then a space, then a URL-encoded message (to allow spaces and other troublesome characters). The receiving end in both directions decodes the message and calls a handler depending on what the command word was.

    Debugging the server can be a little tricky but you can paste a complete request into your browser and see what comes back. At the start it'll mostly be PHP errors...
