    Wireless Question...

    I am planning to develop Internet application for Mobile Devices. For that in need interact with database and download info on mobile device. Then process the info and send it back to main database. Simple haan!!
    This is how i intend to do
    1) Create XML file containing required info using ASP.
    2) Download that XML file to mobile device.
    3) Process the info on mobile.
    4) Send it back to main server, but how will i update database??

    Can some please give me with info as to what is the best way to do this? Or can this be done at all using ASP/XML technology.

    Thanks

    Monty

    That depends much more on the server-side language you use to process the HTTP request in step 4 than it does on XML. What language are you planning to use?

    Answer that question, and I can either help you or transfer you to the appropriate forum.

    Question

    Um, does Sybase SQLAnywhere receive HTTP requests?

    The reason I ask is that in a typical server setup for MySQL, it's Apache that handles the HTTP request, with a scripting language such as Perl or PHP acting as an intermediary to the MySQL database. Sybase is something I've never worked with.
