We have an android app that currently sends data to a php script which writes to a mysql DB on the same server. We are thinking of using a scalable remote DB e.g. amazon RDS.The question is how does our android app write to these remote DBs? Do they have some kind of rest API, or do we have to send the data to the same php script on our server but use that to post to the remote mysql DB?

talk about limited information! I'm trying to get my Android application to connect to an online database to access information. There's quite a bit of info including geotags and these are going to be mapped on my app. The developer site has the very informative piece of information:You can use the network (when it's available) to store and retrieve data on your own web-based services.

The idea is to allow developers to access a remote database provided by google.In android the developer will need a special permission to be set at the manifest file.This could allow applications to keep a backup of users application data without having to sign in ever, seamless.Users could than sign-in to their gmail and see a list of applications that are currently storing data on their gmail space.The user could be allowed to wipe the data or even block the application from storing data to it.This idea make the most sense since Android will be a platform were users will be constantly changing android phones as new better ones come out.

I am trying to write an Android app to connect to an existing web service. I'm pretty new to web services in general, other than what I've done with this first web services (written with JSPs, Struts 1.x, and JAVA). This web service is connected to a document storage database. The user would first login to the service, then using search parameters (document title, type, etc.) the user would be displayed a list of possibly relevant documents. The user would choose a specific document from that list, and the service would then stream the entire document (pdf file) to the user for viewing.What methods are available to Android where I can make a request given some specific parameters, and be able to parse a response?The only thing I know of is HTTP, but my project leader (I'm a summer intern) is hinting that there are others available. I'm not sure where to start looking.
