Hi Jeff and welcome to the forum-

Since network efficiency is at a premium with a platform like Android, server communication is sometimes better off using a leaner format, e.g. comma delimited messages etc rather than the more verbose XML.

How does Android address the use of XML messaging?

thanks
Max Tomlinson

Hi Max,

As far as I can tell, Android does not do anything special in regard to XML messages. However, Michael Galpin points out in the Performance comparison section of his Using Internet data in Android applications article that enabling gzip compression on the client and server can significantly reduce message size.

Thanks for the welcome.

Jeff
