I have a question regarding Retrofit. I use it in many of my personal apps and love it's simplicity. At work, it was decided that we needed to roll our own REST client. The biggest reason for that was because of how screen orientation would tear down activities and any API call that was in transit wouldn't come back successfully. This I/O talk from 2010 describes the issue and how to solve it (http://www.google.com/events/io/2010/sessions/developing-RESTful-android-apps.html
). Personally, I didn't think this was an issue that necessitated rolling our own REST client, but hey, nobody else agreed.
So, I'm curious, does Retrofit handle this scenario? I'm just looking for a reason to scrap our REST client for something easier to use that benefits from being open source.
