The significant number of mobile devices such as cellular phones, smart phones and PDA usages are increasing rapidly in recent year. Popularity of wireless connection along with the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA); Pocket PC, Palm and Windows CE have been growing significantly as well. Applications have been designed and developed for mobile devices base on the personal and business usage purposes. These applications can be define as mobile applications. Even though, the number Pocket PC, Palm or other handheld devices usage are growing, the design and implementation of mobile applications for these devices is still currently a novelty for most researchers, developers and programmers. In this project, I design, implement and develop a mobile application, which allows users to wirelessly connect SQL server on Pocket PC to SQL server on main database server and exchange data between them. The design of this application involves in the exploring the Pocket PC, which has limited memory, storage space, and no physical keyboard. The design also focuses on developing the user-friendly application interface and efficiently function to exchange data between Pocket PC and data server. The implementation is based on database synchronization technology called Remote Data Access (RDA). RDA allows mobile application to use SQL statement and Internet-based connectivity for transferring information between two SQL servers on different physical locations. The development of this mobile application used the combination of available technology and commercial products such as Microsoft .Net Technology, SQL database management server and Verizon wireless network infrastructure. This mobile application grants users the ability to communicate with database server remotely wherever within the Verizon Wireless network.
