DB Lib (andregarzia/projects/dblib) is a minimalistic database library for LiveCode that works on Desktop and Mobile and allows you to build database-savvy apps without writing SQL directly.
This post is to introduce a great new feature called Remote DB Lib. As you may know from posts on the mailing list and forums, many developers would like to use DB Lib in their apps over the internet. Like all other database libraries that work on top of RevDB, DB Lib (until today) needed to connect directly to the database server to work and this is not a good solution for apps that work over the internet since exposing MySQL to the internet at large is a huge security risk. Today I am releasing the first version of a drop-in replacement library called **Remote DB Lib**. This new library has the same API as the current DB Lib but instead of working on top of RevDB, it works alongside a matching PHP file on your server, it is this PHP file that actually talks to the database server. The Remote DB Lib picks all your DB Lib calls and packs it on an encrypted message that is sent to the PHP file where it is decrypted and executed. This library is using state of the art AES 256 encryption. More info at: andregarzia.com/en/blog/introducing-remote-dblib This new library is a part of the DB Lib product so all current customers should be receiving an update notice shortly. For those that don't have a license yet, this is a good time to get it and enhance the security of your apps.
