I want to develop an application on the Android platform to connect to salesforce. From what i have found salesforce provides service API's which can be used to connect to salesforce servers by creating a Web service from the client-side application.
Salesforce developer site has examples of creating such a Web service by using Apache Axis as the SOAP client and using the WSDL file downloaded from the salesforce website. I want to know can this be done from the Android platform?
Is there a version of Apache Axis ported for Android? I did some googling and could find that Android does not have an inbuilt SOAP client and usually, Ksoap is used on Android. But I have also read that KSOAP doesn't support WSDL.
I have seen the above question asked before but quite a while ago, As the Android platform has emerged ever since I want to know what is the current situation and options of doing this.
Also, since I am new to Android and development on Android if anyone can direct me to a sample code snippet, which creates a Web Service from android to connect to salesforce, I would be highly grateful.
Thanks in Advance.
