We are planning on using kXML RPC or kSOAP as opposed to a
proprietry text based communications protocol for obvious reasons.
The problem we have though, is that the JAR file is too large even
after obfuscation which is going to prevent us from going down this path.
We require at least 30k for application logic and want to keep the application size below 50k. Are there any implementations besides
kXMLRPC or kSOAP that will comply with our requirements ?
Are there any other options,strategies ? We really want to use web services.

Hi,
FIRST:
I don't know if it's a real solution.I advice to left your server manage the web services and your mobile recuperate only the result by HTTP.
SECOND:
I think that the JSR 172 treat the web services so no need to add a new API.

As far as I can tell, JSR 172 is not available as shared library on any device. Its implementation comes as an extra JAR file that has to be bundled into your application. I do not think that JAR file is any smaller than kSOAP.
Of course, things would change if Nokia and Motorola start to embed JSR 172 into their phone ROM.
