ksoap2-android meets okhttp
The ksoap2-android project has been in mostly maintenance mode for a long time, but it is still receiving lots of usage. Recently a very useful improvement came up in discussions around HTTP connections issues. The robust and powerful OKHttp library can be used to create an alternative transport. With the new 3.6.1 release I just created recently, you now have access to transport and service connection classes that use the latest OKHttp release. This will make your SOAP service connection more reliable across devices.
