Default BES 5 and Widget question

Please Login to Remove!


Excuse the ignorance (vast as it may be), but I have a question regarding developing widgets and running the latest BES server.

I have never had to touch BES or develop for blackberrys but now have to research into providing a solution for a client.

They have data in a MS SQL Server table that needs to be accessible to the phones. They do not want to install a web server(apache/IIS) to do this, but want a BB widget app (JS / HTML) and to leverage their existing bes server (5). The client side part i can find more than enough info on, it's how the BES server will be able to serve this data?

If someone can point me in the right direction, I can't seem to find any docs on it.

To sum up, i need to server data from a SQL Server (2005) database to a widget on the phone, how do i do this?

Many thanks in advance.

I would repost on the Blackberry Widget forum.
