    Hey there,

    as you might know, Android's usage is based a lot on communicating with other machines over the internet. For this, numerous protocols are available, e.g. XML-RPC, SOAP, CORBA and many many others, and they either depend on the HTTP protocol or are directly based on the lowest mechanism, sockets. They usually have in common to provide a somewhat clean interface on both ends, as well as an abstraction from the lower API levels.

    I'd like to know which libraries you know of that are already working in Android that allow users to use such advanced communication mechanisms.

    What I already know:
    kSOAP can be used on top of the built-in HttpClient, which works just fine.

    Any others?
