View Full Version : Connection with remote My-Sql db

Aug 6, 2011, 07:49 AM
Dear All,

With the help of this forum, I just did well with my first iOS app.
And now I want to extend it. I am done with GUI part for iOS as replica of one web-app that already is running well and that communicates with My-Sql db.

Keeping same DB at its place, I want my iOS app to communicate with that DB and fetching and uploading data to that mysql db.

How this can be implemented. If possible, refer me to some url/tutorial.

The usual way is by providing a REST web service that your mobile app can communicate with.

There are a small number of databases that provide web services "out of the box." One commercial service I'm familiar with is mongolab but there are others.
