Hi, I have researched for hours on the subject but I am still at a loss over what to do. I have some really noob questions which I hope someone can help with!
Basically, I would like to connect to an SQL database, through a Web Service. I have tried this before in ASPX .Net but I am not sure how similar they are in Cascades.
Unfortunately I really could not find any examples/proper tutorials to show me exactly what I should be expecting. Can someone please just give an example of the whole structure?
1) What the code in Cascades as to how to call and retrieve the values?
I have found this http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Deve
2) my data is in sql, do I need to convert it to Json or something first (as per example above)? If so, how am I supposed to do so?
2B) How am I supposed to process the data that I receive/submit? Do I just map them to a QMap or access them directly?
3) Are 'web service' kinda standardised? Such that it will be similar to what I have been doing on aspx.net? How should I return the values? Can someone please give an example of how a function might look on it?
What programme can I use to do it? Will Visual Studio do? Is it different from creating a web service for a web application?
4) Is the SOAP sample relevant to what I am looking for?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you for clearing up certain things for me!!
Is the QtSoap referring to an actual UI manager? I found a few including QSoapMan, SoapUI, EasySoap++; which would you recommend as the most compatible with Cascades?
Also, I assume SOAP is the actual format the data is being transferred? What would the the actual language that is processing it on the server side? (Sorry if this question sounds too silly! :s)
