Default fetching data from mysql database and display on android edittext and spinner box

I have to develop one android native application.

Here i have to fetch the value from mysql database and display on android edittext and spinner box.

I have to run the app means the value is fetching from database and displayed on android edittext.but not display on spinner box.

How can i display the value on android spinner box fetching from mysql database.

I have used the below webservice code:

public class DisplayProfile {
public String customerData(String Username,String Bcountry){

String customerInfo = "";


Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://","root","");
PreparedStatement statement = con.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM xcart_customers where `login` = 'mercy'");
ResultSet result = statement.executeQuery();

customerInfo = customerInfo + result.getString("login")+ ":" +result.getString("b_country");

catch(Exception exc){
return customerInfo;
These is my android code:

public class RetailerActivity extends Activity {
private final String NAMESPACE = "http://xcart.com";
private final String URL = "";
private int i;
private final String SOAP_ACTION = "http://xcart.com/customerData";
private final String METHOD_NAME = "customerData";
String str,country,country1;

String selectedItem;

Spinner spinner;

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
spinner = (Spinner) findViewById(R.id.tf_country);

try {
SoapObject request = new SoapObject(NAMESPACE, METHOD_NAME);
SoapSerializationEnvelope envelope = new SoapSerializationEnvelope(SoapEnvelope.VER11);


HttpTransportSE ht = new HttpTransportSE(URL);

ht.call(SOAP_ACTION, envelope);
SoapPrimitive response = (SoapPrimitive)envelope.getResponse();
SoapPrimitive s = response;
str = s.toString();
String[] words = str.split(":");
EditText tv = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.user);

spinner = (Spinner) findViewById(R.id.tf_country);
country = words[1].toString();

for (int i = 0, l = words.length; i < l; ++i) {



catch (Exception e) {

private void createSpinnerDropDown() {

//Array list of animals to display in the spinner
List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();


list.add("United Status");
list.add("Aland Islands");
ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
R.layout.row, R.id.country, list);

spinner.setPrompt("Choose a Country");


spinner.setOnItemSelectedListener(new OnItemSelectedListener() {

public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int pos, long id) {

selectedItem = parent.getItemAtPosition(pos).toString();


public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> parentView)
Here i have to run the app means am getting following error on my console window:
