How to call a SOAP web service on Android

To call a SOAP web service on Android, you can use the HttpURLConnection class to send an HTTP request to the web service and receive the response. Here's an example of how you can do this:

String soapRequest = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?>"
                   + "<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi=\"\" xmlns:xsd=\"\" xmlns:soap=\"\">"
                   + "  <soap:Body>"
                   + "    <YourMethodName xmlns=\"\">"
                   + "      <param1>value1</param1>"
                   + "      <param2>value2</param2>"
                   + "    </YourMethodName>"
                   + "  </soap:Body>"
                   + "</soap:Envelope>";

URL url = new URL("http://yourwebserviceurl");
HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
connection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8");
connection.setRequestProperty("SOAPAction", "");

OutputStream os = connection.getOutputStream();

int responseCode = connection.getResponseCode();
if (responseCode == HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {
  // read the response
  InputStream is = connection.getInputStream();
  // process the response


In this example, the soapRequest variable contains the SOAP request message that will be sent to the web service. The request message includes the method name and the parameters that you want to pass to the web service.

You will need to replace "YourMethodName" and "" with the actual method name and namespace of the web service, and replace "value1" and "value2" with the actual values for the parameters. You will also need to replace "http://yourwebserviceurl" with the actual URL of the web service.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
