Default Connecting to data source - new MDS Studio user

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all! I am totally new to BlackBerries and the Java world. I come from the VB and MS Access world.

It is my 3rd day with MDS Studio and 1st with the actual device (7520). I have read about half of the MDS help files but it's all new and muddy. So far, I understand creating data components and almost understand messages.

I am attempting to develop an app that connects to an Access db and does a simple search on a name and returns related info. The first big question: where does the actual connection to the database happen. Where and how do I configure that connection? How are tables in the db queried? Should I study some Java before I dive into this?

Thanks for helping a newbie,
