It comes with an implementation example to access a MySQL database.

Accessing databases that are hosted in different machines is not always possible for a variety of reasons.

That is the case for instance when the database is based on files accessed directly without using a server, or when the server does not accept TCP/IP based connections, or there is a firewall blocking the TCP ports that the database server uses to accept connections.

This package provides a workaround that can overcome all those limitations. It acts as a SOAP server that can be used to make remote database access requests.

Despite it may not be fast for accessing large amounts of data, this SOAP server package can always be reachable as it is meant to run on a Web server like any PHP script.

The usual Web based authentication methods and SSL can be used to provide a security layer when necessary.
