Serving data for mobile apps - which framework to use? Or whether to use ASP.NET at all? RRS feed

  • Question

    I want to access a SQL Server database from various mobile devices. This database already has views, stored procedures, etc.

    The host will have a fixed IP address, but is not guaranteed even to have a web site. The SQL Server may be part of a Windows domain or just running on Windows 10 Enterprise or Pro.

    I would like to take advantage of the infrastructure that various frameworks provide (Web Forms, MVC, Web Pages, etc.) to allow users to access and change data, but I would like to minimize the overhead and complications involved using IIS etc.

    At the other end of the spectrum I could just use TCP sockets and a Windows service to process the requests, but then I have to write a whole extra bunch of code to manage user login, data back and forth, and dropped connections (from cellular e.g.), and I am not interested in reinventing the wheel.

    Would someone please suggest where I might begin?

    Thanks in advance
