GET all documents of a couchdb into an android listview

Hello treehouse community,

With this lines of code I'm saving some data of input fields into my couchdb database:

public static HttpResponse makeRequest(String uri, String json) {
    try {
        HttpPost httpPost = new HttpPost(uri);
        httpPost.setEntity(new StringEntity(json));
        httpPost.setHeader("Accept", "application/json");
        httpPost.setHeader("Content-type", "application/json");
        return new DefaultHttpClient().execute(httpPost);
    } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
    } catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
    } catch (IOException e) {
    return null;

Now I want to display all the stored documents in a ListView.I really can't find a way to GET all documents in form of JSON objects or something like that without the need of some external library like Ektrop or lightcouch.

Is there a easy way to solve my problem? When you know a step by step tutorial or could give me a helpful hint I would be very thankful.

Otherwise which library would help me by getting the data out of the couchdb and is friendly for a newbie like me on this topic?

Thanks in advance.
