Sending data to MySQL database RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have an app where I want to send text data (from a text box and message box) and then store it on the database. I have looked at some different options and am getting confused. I also would like to read from that database in the app as well. I have done this before using the ConnectorNet utility offered by MySQL and using the mySQLdata.dll. I understand how to do that, but in Windows Phone that dll does not compile with the app since it was not written for the WP7 assemblies.
    I have seen the option to use a web service to wrap these calls in and do it that way, but have not seen any good/clear examples with doing that for Windows Phone 7. Does anyone have a way around the first option I mentioned (since I am familiar with that) or any links to some nice/clear examples on using a webservice to send queries to a mySQL database?
