Hello

I am new in android development.
I have a java web application which use spring and hibernate framework.
I want to know that, is it possible to bind this java application with android application.
Like, should i use java application as a server side and use android as client side to create mobile application.

Thanks in advance

A web service is more appropriate to use as a backend.

I have used the simple web service and i am aware of this.

But in my java application use different frameworks like spring and ibatis

In that case how can i use my java application on server side.

Sure, you can run a web application that uses Spring, iBatis, and whatever other frameworks you please, and have it accessible via WS by an Android app. No difficulty at all.
