Citrix is not a database it is an access platform like VPN. The database app on handango is just a synching tool that allows the Blackberry to read/write/store an existing database. The customer is looking to use the Blackberry to go through Citrix to access a database
k, there's no Citrix client currently available for the BlackBerry. when you said Citrix database, I figure you meant the backend MSSQL, Oracle, etc. type database that powers the backend of Citrix environments on newer versions of Metaframe and Presentation Server, in which case, they could use a database viewing utility such as the one I suggested and access the actual database directly via MDS. Citrix does not have its own propietary database, though. it uses MSDE by default and can be installed on just about any database platform. we use Citrix extensively here.

I recommend that you try our Idokorro Mobile Desktop software, it's a VNC client for BlackBerry, specifically optmized for the BlackBerry 8700, but also works on any color BlackBerry with 4.0 or higher.
And it keeps asking me to enter the hostname. I'm not on a BES and I was under the impression that I didn't have to be to use this. What do I need to enter?
You are correct you don't need a BES, but you do need a way to connect to your citrix presentation server. Without a BES you need to enter the internet IP or hostname of your Citrix Presentation Server. If you need more help please contact and we will be glad to help you.
This kicks butt!!! It works perfectly with my Exchange BES (4.1.3) MDS and my 8700r (v18.104.22.1681 / 22.214.171.124). I did have to do a soft reboot (alt + cap + del) after installing it to successfully log into my Citrix published desktop - otherwise I kept getting java exceptions as soon as the desktop appeared.
I can think of a few customers that would love this that I will need to call in the morning... I'm now concerned about data usage on my 25MB Rogers plan though
