A couple of points: Firstly, you can't communicate with a DB, you need an intermediate server that is accessible via HTTP. That server in turn will communicate with the DB.

Secondly, why do you want to use SOAP? For a mobile device, it would be much more common to use REST. Android has the excellent HttpClient library built in which makes that pretty easy. You can use a library such as Jersey on the server.

It's pretty easy to find example code of Android apps using REST to communicate with servers on the web. Just ask Google :-)

@Tim Moores,

Thanks for your feedback.

Which is the best server to communicate? I thought of using IBM Websphere Application Sphere(WAS). Is that good? Or any recommendation???

It's impossible to make a recommendation without knowing a whole lot more about what you intend to do. If a REST server is all, then a servlet engine like Tomcat should be sufficient. WAS would work as well, though.
