I've spent some time playing around with the trial version of Marmalade and have liked everything so far. I am considering making a purchase but I am having some trouble locating some clear information regarding database connections.
I am looking to make a connection to a SQL or MySQL database through Marmalade and I was curious on what options I have. The database that I want to connect to will be on a different server so SQLite would not work in my situation. Everything I have read so far seems to suggest my only option is using IwHTTP to perform GET or POST operations, but I was hoping for a slightly more direct method.
Has anyone successfully done any sort of database connections without using IwHTTP? If so, do you have any tutorials or suggestions? If my only option is IwHTTP does anyone have any good tutorials for database connections using this? I was looking at using MySQL++, but I believe I had read a post saying that there were issues using this with Marmalade.
I appreciate any help or suggestions that anyone can provide.
