I have some plans to make a simple networked boardgame with a lobby, chat communications with the server. The ser things simple. How are the Android facilities for commucating with a java server using RP XML-RPC? Which would be simplest? Sho just use sockets instead? What other alternatives do I have?

Android has no native XML-RPC libs, but there are good open-source ones that you can easily incorporate. I would suggest JSON to minimize traffic and lag, and it's natively supported too.
