    SQL Anywhere access from web??

    Hi All
    I am an inexperienced database developer - a mature student who is trying hard to understand some basics... though in some areas have good understanding / knowledge...

    Please can someone explain in 'english' how or if a database created in SQL Anywhere - stored on a server could be accessed remotely by users within an organisation where no network presently exists...

    Can it be done through a web site??

    Any responses very welcomed

    If there is no network how would you even access the Internet? Do the users have dial-up capability or wireless access to an Internet service provider?

    Hi Paul
    Sorry - I didnt explain myself very well ....
    I have a situation where 3 - 8 people access info for a specific cause (small charity) all done manually at present (and very much duplicated)... 2 of these already have internet access and communicate via email - and obviously the others could also get a home PC etc....They (We???) are looking into developing a relational database with SQL Anywhere (which fits in with my project work) - which will have great benefits to the charity (certainly for the future and also at present to give the workers an idea of what can be achieved) A Network in an 'office' type environment is highly likely in the long term - but at present ALL work is done from individuals homes. I would like to be a little bit more knowledgeable on this (for my project) but more specifically for the charity to let them know what is possible... Ie could we initially get access to the database over the internet - obviously with adequate security measures.
    Any info greatly welcomed
    Regards
    Lynne

    It sounds like what you're looking for, to provide remote data access via http, is a distributed technology such as XML web services. I don't know what development tools you are working with but you can create XML web services and clients using Visual Studio.NET or 2005.
