How to get table values from a MySQL database and show it in Android as Tables.?

Here we are accessing a mysql database and get the table values and show it in the Android side as tables.

These are some tutorials that I have posted on connection with php and getting tablevalues.
1. Android phpmySQL connection redone.

2. Simplest Lazy Loading ListView Example in Android with data populated from a MySQL database using php.

Here we have 3 classes
1. GetDataFromDB.java – Gets value from DB in the form of JSON.
2. Users.java _ Class which holds the one row table object.
3. MainActivity.java _ Which implements these classes and show the tables.

MainActivity.java

			}
		}).start();
	}

	public ArrayList<Users> parseJSON(String result) {

		} catch (JSONException e) {
