Manage requests with AsyncTaskLoader: Android App Development: RESTful Web Services

The AsyncTask architecture is a wrapper around a background thread, but is tightly bound to an activity’s life cycle. You risk losing the task during a configuration change. You can solve that by using a class named AsyncTaskLoader. AsyncTaskLoader does everything AsyncTask does in terms of managing a background thread, but it isn’t as strongly tied to the activity life cycle. It’s still owned by a single activity, but unlike AsyncTask it isn’t interrupted by any configuration changes.
