    First off, an introduction - my name is Dillon, and I am a newbie to
    iPhone Application Development. I have been head deep in studying
    reference materials and video tutorials, and in the past few months, I
    feel I have made tremendous progress.
    However, after a few weeks of being stuck on an issue, I figured it
    was time to ask the experts.
    The goal in my learning is to communicate from the app to my database
    (php/mysql). The ultimate goal is to run a search, and have the
    results sent back to the app from the database.
    As a brief to anyone with the time to help, I am using two books for
    direction and code references: iPhone SDK 3 Progg. by Maher Ali &
    iPhone SDK3: Visual Quickstart Guide by Duncan Campbell. I believe
    the code to be right, but I am unsure of how to go about testing it's
    communication back and forth.
    Before I post all this code, maybe a more simple approach can help.
    Is there any sort of testing or debugging advice anyone has for basic
    app2db connectivity? Please let me know if I need to post the code
    that I am using.
    Thanks in advance,
    D. Hott

    Is your database going to be on your iPhone, included with the app, or on a remote server?
