I've been working on a little program for my company for keeping the records of some members, it's basically a WinApp, but since the company has a website in which certain people visit and become members i was wondering if i could update my DB from the website, provided that the guys who did the website are willing to help. but if they are i want to know how can i get the data from them ( i think they made the site with php and mysql). somebody told me that i could ask them to provide me with a web service that would give me (my program) the data in Xml format. can anybody help with this? i want to know where to start and what stuff do i need to know for this job.
