How can I create an Android booking system which is linked to a PC based server program?

To make it as simple as possible I am creating a booking system for a hotel. I need an application which will be an Android app and a Java program which will act as a server sending out data as requested. My my main priority is getting my app and the program to work together.

I have experience in Java so the Java side is fine. The only thing I am concerned about is how to get the app and the program to be able to access the same database and retrieve or change details etc.

Does anybody have any idea of where I need to start this? I have 2 months so I'm in the research stage right now.


I usually use WebService and JSON. I leave a link to another contribution which gives a tutorial. I think that's what you're looking for.
