after reading all 97 nearlier posts, and most docs found on the
microsoft net, I am still a newbie: I do not even know to start, -> I
do not even mean writing code.
Maybe I describe what I plan to do:
I use a Windows CE device with WirelessLan Card. I want to open a
recordset using an sql statement on a PC in our local company net.
This Server can run an IIS 5.0 (if I want it to), and the data is
stored in an Access 2000 .MDB File.
As I understand SOAP, it is used for such tasks.
So, my Quesions would be:
Do I need a .NET Compiler to start with ? Do I need to write a server
component dll, or is this already available for my case ?
What Software do I need on the Server ? IIS I guess, but it has to be
enhanced by some toolkit. I guess the Microsoft Soap 2.0 Toolkit is
right, but after running it, nothing (I noticed) changed... Something
I am missing there ?
What Software do need to install on my Compaq IPAQ WinCE Device, or
to make it easier, on another standard PC ? If I understood
everything correct, I have to 'call' a Website on the server... any
comments/instructions on this ?
I guess, if all runs OK, I get back XML Text - if I had this text,
taking it apart seems to be an easier part...
As you probably see by now - I do have no idea how and where to
start - thanks for your help !
