Android https post

How can I send HTTPS post request from android?
I am trying to send data from my AVD to a web service on a website using ssl but I my request is not being delivered.

It would be best to test from an actual device instead of the AVD. If you are behind a proxy, you need to do a little work around to get the AVD to connect to the internet. Does normal HTTP requests work?

Post some code snippets so that we can see how you are doing it and help you spot possible mistakes
