JSON Question

Error send and receive XML and JSON Android

Hi I'm working on an old android project which use

class which now depreciated and will be remove from API 22. How do we make a migration to
but still keep the original functionality? ALl my http POST is now not working with the error

22 16:16:33.755 5553-6064/com.singPost D/SingPost: payload: <OverseasPostalInfoDetailsRequest xmlns="http://singpost.com/paw/ns"><Country>AFAFG</Country><Weight>100</Weight><DeliveryServiceName></DeliveryServiceName><ItemType></ItemType><PriceRange>999</PriceRange><DeliveryTimeRange>999</DeliveryTimeRange></OverseasPostalInfoDetailsRequest>
08-22 16:16:33.755 5553-6064/com.singPost D/SingPost: Utils-request: https://prdesb1.singpost.com/ma/FilterOverseasPostalInfo
08-22 16:16:35.667 5553-6064/com.singPost E/SingPost: IOException: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Handshake failed
08-22 16:16:35.691 5553-6008/com.singPost E/Surface: getSlotFromBufferLocked: unknown buffer: 0x7f67d844e5c0

here is my webservice API call:

public static String callWS(String url, String module, String method, String payload) throws UnsupportedEncodingException, ClientProtocolException, IOException, ParseException, Exception{
HttpClient httpsClient;
HttpPost httppost;

HttpResponse response = null;
String ret = "";

httpsClient = getHTTPSClient();

String request = url;
if(!module.equalsIgnoreCase("") && !method.equalsIgnoreCase("")){
request += "/" + module + "/" + method;
}else if(!module.equalsIgnoreCase("")){
request += "/" + module;
}else if(!method.equalsIgnoreCase("")){
request += "/" + method;

Log.d(Constants.TAG, Utils.class.getSimpleName() + "-request: " + request);

try {

httppost = new HttpPost(request);
httppost.setHeader("Content-Type", Constants.contentType);
if(payload!=null && !payload.equalsIgnoreCase("")){
httppost.setEntity(new StringEntity(payload, HTTP.UTF_8));
response = httpsClient.execute(httppost);

if (response != null) {
ret = EntityUtils.toString(response.getEntity(), "UTF-8");
System.out.println("Response: "+ret);

}catch(SocketTimeoutException e){
Log.d(Constants.TAG, "SocketTimeoutException: " + e.toString());
}catch(Exception e){
Log.d(Constants.TAG, "Exception: " + e.toString());
return ret;

My getHTTPSClient()

public static DefaultHttpClient getHTTPSClient() {
SchemeRegistry schemeRegistry = new SchemeRegistry();
schemeRegistry.register(new Scheme("http", PlainSocketFactory.getSocketFactory(), 80));
schemeRegistry.register(new Scheme("https", new EasySSLSocketFactory(), 443));

HttpParams params = new BasicHttpParams();
params.setParameter(ConnManagerPNames.MAX_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS, 30);
params.setParameter(ConnManagerPNames.MAX_CONNECTIONS_PER_ROUTE, new ConnPerRouteBean(30));
params.setParameter(HttpProtocolParams.USE_EXPECT_CONTINUE, false);

HttpConnectionParams.setConnectionTimeout(params, Constants.DEFAULT_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT);
HttpConnectionParams.setSoTimeout(params, Constants.DEFAULT_SOCKET_TIMEOUT);
ConnManagerParams.setTimeout(params, Constants.DEFAULT_SOCKET_TIMEOUT);
HttpProtocolParams.setVersion(params, HttpVersion.HTTP_1_1);

ClientConnectionManager cm = new SingleClientConnManager(params, schemeRegistry);
DefaultHttpClient httpClient= new DefaultHttpClient(cm, params);
return httpClient;

And in activity(Fragment), I call like that

result = Utils.callWS(Constants.getSP_WS_URL(), Constants.MODULE_MA, Constants.METHOD_POST_FILTER_OVERSEAS_POSTAL_INFO, payload);

One possile endpoint:


My checked payload which is correct:

<OverseasPostalInfoDetailsRequest xmlns="http://singpost.com/paw/ns"><Country>AFAFG</Country><Weight>100</Weight><DeliveryServiceName></DeliveryServiceName><ItemType></ItemType><PriceRange>999</PriceRange><DeliveryTimeRange>999</DeliveryTimeRange></OverseasPostalInfoDetailsRequest>

Anyone know possible of the error and how can we handle it? Thanks a lot

you can try using Volley or similar libraries to get your task done. It's much simpler to use than the old approach. You'll mostly need to re-write the web service calls, but I can guarantee that it won't be as difficult as what you've already done! Here's a tutorial on how to use Volley. It's very easy to get started with.

Following is a simple example as given on their website on how to use Volley. https://developer.android.com/training/volley/requestqueue.html

RequestQueue mRequestQueue;

// Instantiate the cache
Cache cache = new DiskBasedCache(getCacheDir(), 1024 * 1024); // 1MB cap

// Set up the network to use HttpURLConnection as the HTTP client.
Network network = new BasicNetwork(new HurlStack());

// Instantiate the RequestQueue with the cache and network.
mRequestQueue = new RequestQueue(cache, network);

// Start the queue

String url ="http://www.example.com";

// Formulate the request and handle the response.
StringRequest stringRequest = new StringRequest(Request.Method.GET, url,
        new Response.Listener<String>() {
    public void onResponse(String response) {
        // Do something with the response
    new Response.ErrorListener() {
        public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
            // Handle error

// Add the request to the RequestQueue.
