Hello, I am working on an application which should connect to a remote server. Behind that remote server is an MySQL database. So the remote server will be some kind of interface that retrieves data from the MySQL database and sends it to the iPhone. Does this remote server/interface have to be a Web Service? Or can it be anything else? What other possibilities are there besides using a Web Service as a remote server? Hope that I am clear and someone can help me out. Thanks in advance.
