Default advice or help on diary/contact integration

Please Login to Remove!

I have been instructed to investigate to possibility of integrating diary and contact details in a proprietary SQL database with Blackberry phones. I am new to Blackberry phones and do not have one myself (yet).

Details are already maintained on a central database. Some people have blackberrys that can be connected to their Windows based workstations. The project is in two parts.
1. Export diary/calendar events from the SQL database into a format that can then be imported by the blackberry
2. Export contact phone details from the SQL database into a format that can then be imported by the blackberry

3. Import changed or new diary/calendar events from the blackberry into the SQL database.

I am looking for advice if:
1. This is feasible development in VS 2008 and there is good documentation with an SDK
2. There are libraries (3rd party or not) that can help me achieve the goals
3. Someone can take on the work to write the functionality for me (I would obviously need an indication of costs).

Thank you for any advice.
Regards
Dick

THis is all possible, but forget about VS2008. You'll need to use the Blackberry JDE or Eclipse with the BB plugin.

I would start by installing your dev system of choice and working through the sample programs.
