POSTing JSON/XML using android-async-http (loopj)

I am using android-async-http and really liking it. I've run into a problem with POSTing data. I have to post data to the API in the following format: -

<request>
<notes>Test api support</notes>
<hours>3</hours>
<project_id type="integer">3</project_id>
<task_id type="integer">14</task_id>
<spent_at type="date">Tue, 17 Oct 2006</spent_at>
</request>


As per the documentation, I tried doing it using
RequestParams
, but it is failing. Is this any other way to do it? I can POST equivalent JSON too. Any ideas?

Answer

Loopj POST examples - extended from their Twitter example:

private static AsyncHttpClient client = new AsyncHttpClient();

To post normally via RequestParams:

RequestParams params = new RequestParams();
params.put("notes", "Test api support"); 
client.post(restApiUrl, params, responseHandler);

To post JSON:

JSONObject jsonParams = new JSONObject();
jsonParams.put("notes", "Test api support");
StringEntity entity = new StringEntity(jsonParams.toString());
client.post(context, restApiUrl, entity, "application/json",
    responseHandler);
