1. Application requests to connect to Cellular data connection for SIM authentiaction of operator. If Wi-Fi and Mobile Data both are available, do server resuest through Mobile data only.
2. On successful connection, a server request is sent and recieve the xml response.
3. Parse this xml response and create JSON object.
4. Make available this JSON object to hybrid application.


I tried it with Webworks custom extension but didn't get success beacause there is no complete working sample available for Signal Slot mechanism.
