    Can access remote database??

    Hi friends,

    Can I access database on a remote server using Symbian phone? Can I interact with the remote database?
    E.g. read some rowsets from remote database and update its data.

    If yes,how to do it?

    Thank you.

    Yes, of course. As soon as you find out what kind of remote access the given database server provides, you can get / implement a handler for it.

    Thank you,

    would you please provide details? e.g. should I use DBMS to do it or socket or http to do it?
    If http, what should the url be like,etc.
    I searched this forum,some guys asked something similar long time before,but no reply for their questions.

    I am in need of help.

    Thank you.

    Re: Can access remote database??

    And now,I've found the following helpful link

    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...SyncML_profile

    But I'm still stuck, the overview said "Accessing remote and local databases of a SyncML profile",
    what does it mean by 'databases of a SyncML profile'? It means the database must be kind of syncML profile?
    What's syncML profile?

    There is no "the database". And you could read about SyncML (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SyncML for example) in order to find out if it has any use for you.

    Well,thank you,I've checked it up,it has no use for me.

    And there seems to be something called webservice that can do it,I know little about webservice,
    any friend can explain and demonstrate how/what to do with an example?


    Thank you very much.

    Web Services are not exactly databases. Otherwise the AddressBook example of the SDK-s actually uses a Web Service.
    A search key you can benefit from is SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol).
