Hi ..i've been going through Paul Sanghera's SCBCD study guide in an attempt to create a solution.(Okay I know this isn't a certification question but I thought I would post here because I am using the certification book+sylabbus)

The current situation is that we have a MySQL database on our server that is accessed through a (PHP&Javascript)web application that is distributed to all the branches of the business.We now have a need to provide certain contractors the ability to query subsets of the DB remotely from their business premises...Hence why I'm study the SCBCD study guide.

What I would like to know is if it is possible to have the entity beans operate on the mysql database somehow?

Any databases providing a JDBC driver can be used. So MySQL can be used.
