SOAP validateUser

Hey guys. I'm basically trying to create an android application here.#

I'm up to passing the username and password given on the login page and trying to verfy that with a SOAP XML file.

Here is my SOAP 1.1 file on the server.

Now I'm wondering if there are any tutorials or source code I could view to pass the parametres to the form and then get the response confirming the correct username and password.
This will be the first time I've done this so any help would be thanked

I am using Ksoap2 by the way. I just added the jar to my library.

This is the code I've tried to implement but I do not think it is working.

If you are trying to do basic authentication, then the way you have used is not quite the way it should be done.
Take a look at section 4 in chapter 8 of my electronic book, which you can download freely from, for an example on how to do basic authentication in connection to SOAP web services.
Best wishes!

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
