I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for tutorials or something on how to create a webservice of some sort.
Something like this: default
Where using the following parameterized url returns a simple xml result: http://www.webservicex.net/airport.a...irportCode=ATL
Basically, I have a web host that is supporting a database. Due to restrictions from the web host, the database can only be accessed using localhost (or in other words, can only be accessed on the server-side). I have an embedded client-side app which I would like to have access to that database. I was hoping a webservice would solve this problem for me (stop me here if I am wrong).
Based on user input, I would query the webservice (or one of several webservices) to retrieve small bits of data from the database.
Simple enough, but I have absolutely no idea how to actually create a webservice, and I have not been able to really find anything helpful online.
