    Flashlight database question

    I'm currently in the process of writing a mobile application in Flashlight. At the moment I'm wondering what would be the best way to store user-data. Basically what I need to do is store an array of coordinates for individual users. Would it be best to go with XML or to post it to a PHP file?
    Also, given that I am using a system involving separate users, the same question goes for the database of usernames and passwords.

    Re: Flashlight database question

    I suggest using a MYSQL database with PHP. Considering you have users create a simple table structure for users, and another table for co-ordinate data. Then just inner join over the tables based on the user id.

    You could use then create an XML feed which your app could parse.
