    Red face Remote Server?

    What is a remote server?
    What is a database server?
    What is a mobile database?

    Actally im implementing a ordering system on a palm pda.
    i need to know which model of architecture that i could adopt.
    im thinking about this model now:
    pda-->app server-->database server (to n fro)rnativee

    But i know this model is hard to implement.I need to introduce protocols to communicate each other.
    Is there any simple altenative model?

    Im thinking about remote server, but i dont know what it is about?
    can the remote server also act as application server?
    can mobile database act as a application server?

    Please Help

    I would probably create a Web application (e.g., ASP.NET or JSP) with pages optimized for a PDA display. If you don't want your app to run in a Web browser, you could create a native Palm app that communicates with a Web service. In either case, the Web/database code will be the same as a standard Web app, so you won't have to use any special protocols.

    Question How do i do it?

    Thanx for the reply...

    You say to create a native palm app that communicates with a web service.
    How do i do that?

    I have changed my architecture to:

    Client -->Mobile Database/App Server

    Can the mobile database both act as a application server?
    Can i use tcp socket programming to communicate both app server and client
    (to n fro).

    I don't know. This is not an appropriate forum for Palm application development questions.
