App to access SQL Server 2008 R2 data
I am BRAND new to app programming but am hoping for a nudge in the right direction. I have a SQL Server 2008 r2 database that an existing (non-ipad) application is accessing and filling and pulling data from - its a .net app actually. My client would like to use the ipad to consume and display but not create data for this database.
Is it possible? and if so, where should i begin formulating a strategy? From what i have seen so far, i'm reading that xml and json type access to the data is the way to go - have any others in here successfully pulled and displayed data from a sql server into a native ipad app?
thanks in advance everyone.
