Sample for sync-software approach

I'm fairly new to Android and plan to implement a sync software for various data from the pc. I digged into the approaches with Activities, RESTful server and so on.

What I did not understand is, how is a server-software part accessed if the Android phone is attached via USB to a pc.

The scenario is:

Android phone will be attached via USB or Bluetooth to a PC and should then be able to communicate with a software on the pc to get data.

Is there a good tutorial which could help me to bring light into this secret?

Thanks in advance.

Have you try the BT and USB APIs:



I'm assuming that you know what to do on the PC side to setup the server end of the comm.

To be honest unless you need high transfer rate / better security. Going over the network is much easier imho.
