Using Android RestClient to Communicate with Google App Engine

Few weeks back I was researching about which is the most efficient  way to call a web service using Android.

I had several options SOAP,KSOAP2 or JAX-RS.

And i concluded my short research after watching google offical video


RESTFULL Client is the google recommended solution for calling web services via android.

I read many tutorials and articles on Restful webservices.

I found the “Android: Using RestClient to communicate with Google App Engine” the best tutorial by Chad Lung.


In the tutorial he created an android project and developed a RESTClient.

He creates a Google App Engine Project. and uses the RESTClient to call the service of Google app Engine.

Google App Engine(GAE) offers users the ability to build and host web applications on Google’s infrastructure.

The languages supported by GAE are JAVA and PYTHON. You can download the app engine sdk from here http://code.google.com/appengine/ and follow the getting started guide there.

Not only is creating an App Engine application easy, it’s free! You can create an account and publish an application that people can use right away at no charge, and with no obligation. An application on a free account can use up to 500MB of storage and up to 5 million page views a month. When you are ready for more, you can enable billing, set a maximum daily budget, and allocate your budget for each resource according to your needs.

You can register up to 10 applications per developer account.

I have followed he tutorial it works perfect. i will upload the fully functional source code archive file soon.

Also If you want to learn more about google app engine just follow this ebook “Google App Engine Java and GWT Application Development“. This is the most latest ebook available on GAE.

You can download the ebook from here http://www.wowebook.com/java/google-app-engine-java-and-gwt-application-development.html

The downloaded archive file includes the PDF ebook and  the fully functional source codes used in the ebook , isn’t it nice 🙂
