    hi,

    AFAIK, it's not supported because no suitable drivers are available to do so.

    You can create a web application which connects a back-end database server, and interacts with the web application via HTTP or socket directly in S60 application. Below is an example given by Nokia Forum.

    connexion to databases server with symbian mobile

    Thanks dougcn,it's very clear that you say but can you help me in an other solution ? :

    i would use the TCP/IP to transfer files which contain query to the DB server where it excutes it and make the result in a XML file to be send after that to the mobile where it can be parsed and used.

    it is possible to do that ?

    thank you and also i hope that you help me now.

    Re: connexion to databases server with symbian mobile

    Yes, if the DB server is prepared to receive queries on a TCP connection, and send back results in XML format (or you create such proxy/interface for the server), it is possible. Symbian supports TCP, and it also supports XML.
    You can also use HTTP for transport.

    Re: connexion to databases server with symbian mobile

    It really depends on your needs and the capabilities of the database server you want to access. Symbian C++ documentation and examples are available on www.forum.nokia.com, and Documentation / Symbian C++ on the left. The SDK-s also come with example projects, in case of S60 3rd edition, S60Ex\AddressBook and Chat might be useful perhaps.
    If you are just learning Symbian C++, you should also check HelloWorldBasic.
