Database, webservices, xml?

Hello, I'm trying to create my first application for Playbook but I have some problems. I've wanted for a long time on the internet but I can not find the solution. In my application I need to query data from an external database. I saw some use webservices to perform this action but I had no success. I have also tried to use this information to an xml file and process it to get jQuery but I can manipulate as I wish. Someone advised me that I can do?. Thanks and sorry for my bad English!. Daniela.

Are you trying to send and retreive information? If so, take a read at this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5354029/login-to-website-with-chrome-extension-and-get-data-from-...

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the reply lobsterEater, The code that appears on this page is to enter a page as a registered user and from the application passes a username and password but I need to do the reverse. I need information stored externally (xml or bd). I do not know what to do!.

I think I know what you mean now...

The link above has a code example of XML parser, which allows you to read XML.
