PocketPC Database Connection .NET 1.1

Hi all,

I have a situation at work where I need to connect a Palm to an SQL
Server or Access database. I'm a bit stuck as to how to proceed. I have
scoped an XML client/server architecture to deal with this, however I
don't want the server side to actually have IIS so Web services are
out. An alternative is to use the webservices2 dll which I have
downloaded and can manage a SOAP client and SOAP server interconnection
on a standard app, no problems. Not on the CE app though.

I guess I am not looking for someone to give me a code solution, but to
let me know if my approach is the best way to solve the problem. No
doubt this is a very common issue so there are no doubt lots of ideas
about solving it.

Thanks in advance for any help,
Steven Nagy

Can we revisit this please? I didn't get any responses. Is there more
information I can provide to help provide a suggestion/solution?

Hi Steven,

How will you use the data on the Palm PDA?

One possible solution might be use use a third party database software
product. Pendragon Forms allows you to create forms for Palm Powered
devices and Pocket PCs that sync to an Access database or other ODBC
data source. You can sync the software to a desktop or server using a
cradle/cable or over a TCP/IP network.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the software.

Hi Suzanne,

Using VS.NET2003 to create a PocketPC app. Need it to talk to a variety
of database types.
Thats why we are depending on the client/server architecture outlined
previously.
The client will send a connection string and some commands along with a
data table of data, the server app on a standard PC will connect to the
relevant database and perform the required operation.

Cheers,
Steven Nagy
