I want to create an application for airlines booking but I can't find any books about connecting my application to a database. Do you know of any books or materials about this?

The application is for windows mobile 6 and I just need an example on how the connection between the database and the application is done, or a book about this. I mention that I use sql manager studio 2008 for the database and visual studio 2008 sp1 for aplication development. Your help will be very appriciated.

Thanks for your time,

yours Benn Adams

i want to learn by my self, not to get an appplication already made..

Your best bet for a Windows Mobile application is not to connect to a database directly but to instead connect to a web service (which connects to the database on the backend).
I'll leave security and authentication for you to sort it out.
