    Good Afternoon!

    With a bit of work and thanks to this post:

    And thanks specially to XICU for helping with the code in my first investigations.

    I have made an automated service,this service will automatically:

    -Call a asmx .NET webservice method,authenticated or not, without need to build or cocatenate a string to build the POST request(i have done it for you :) inside the service).

    -Protected for exceptions thrown by .NET webservice or errors on method calls.

    -Its ready for recieving from webservice:

    *Primitive types(string,int...etc)
    *Complex Types(Object models,either one or list of them)

    -Doesnt need to do XML SAX parse.It parses reading line by line automatically. :D

    -Doesnt need external libraries.Only httputils2 and HTTP.

    -All code is commented inside it for you to know whats happening in almost each line.

    -If an object is returned from webservice,a list of objects,with a list of parameters(with key and value) in each object is returned.(In following weeks i will make an update,for parse those list of list to a android model we will prepare)

    I attach 1 sample with 2 proyects:

    -The B4A project sample(with webservicecall class,webservice service,and keyvaluepair class).This are the only three classes for SOAP to work as i explain.

    -The .NET webservice asmx i used for example.Its done in VS2012.Only for tests.(You will have yours).You have to know how to include it to IIS,as i wont explain it here.

    Things you will need to change for you to work with your webservice:

    -In Webservice service,on top.The username,the password and the URL.Username and password only if authenticated,if not leave at it is.

    -Put the asmx and the dll in IIS(or yours if you got one alredy) and configure it.Search Google if you dont know how to do it.

    -In the main(from the b4a test sample,if want to test).Change(explained in main allredy):

    *The Webservice asmx path to whatever you have put it, or yours is.
    *The method you want to call.
    *The parameters for that method.
    *The object to search from asmx on response(if the method responses an object,not a primitive type)
    *The response callback method in the activity or service if call to asmx has been called ok.
    *The response callback method if the activity or service if call to asmx has errors.

    This is it,if you got any questions,feel free to ask!.
