not such a good idea to connect your client directly to sql server. instead make a service and connect to service, let the service respond to your requests in form of JSON or XML.

here are few examples:-

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-dataAndroid/

have a look at this discussion as well on SO:-

I am not saying it can't be done, however its not advisable to do so...
Even the description of the app says so:-


Perfect for website owners who need to check on things or run a quick update statement
