I don't think bb can directly connect to database located in a remote server. What you need is a middle ware between these two. May be a websevice/servlet. BB sends request to servlet, servlet interacts with db and sends back the response to bb.

One would expect that the BB developer web site has examples of stuff like this.

Tim has already replied. However the following can be a sample work flow.

At the client (BB) end
---------------------------

However you need to make sure you call the above method in a separate thread.

Server end (Servlet)
--------------------
