Database access

Hey guys whats up. I programmed with Java & C++ for about 5 years, but in my recent transition from PC to Mac, I decided to take up Cocoa programing. I need to create a program, that uses an online database(so that it can be accessed 24/7 without me having my own computer running) and pulls the info from the database and has it displayed via a window on my program.

Example:

This is some fake data that must be able to be accessed online 24/7:

-----------------------------
| Julia | 270 | Yellow |
-----------------------------
| Scott | 130 | Red |
-----------------------------
| Raphael | 349 | Green |
-----------------------------

This is the fake program displayed via a GUI, as soon as the program opens, the data should be updated via the online database:

====================
|| Candy Sales ||
====================
|| Name || # Sold || Score ||
====================
|| Raphael || 349 || Green ||
|| Scott || 130 || Red ||
|| Julia || 270 || Yellow ||
====================

Any help with ideas, tutorials, sample code, would be much appreciated.

What are you using to store the data online? SQL? Core Data may come in handy for this type of problem.

Ahh yes core data apps. I have successfully created an little core data app, however the next step for me is to try to move the xml file online somewhere so that it can be accessed/updated online. Do you know of a way to do this, preferably some sort of free way to do this, as I am freelancing.

One possible solution I was thinking of is saving the XML file on a website (ie geocities, freewebs). Is there any way to allow my program to replace the current XML stored in lib/app support with the XML via the URL? If this is a possibility, what flaws, security issues do you see and what are some possible viable solutions? Also please elaborate on any other solutions for 24/7 online access, tutorials, or documents would be nice
