What I don't understand here is why you want to have a direct connection
between your application running on the mobile device and the database.
Wouldn't it make more sense to model your application around some MVC style
framework, and keep the Mobile part just the user interface to a remote
transaction layer that then works with the database? I mean you could
easily implement this with a SOAP Web Services set of calls coming from the
Mobile device to a server that does the interaction with the database. Then
you don't need to have a local DB on the mobile device, or have any client
interface directly with the database at all.

It also enables you to choose different devices for the deployment (ie. Web
browsers, PC clients, etc.) without having to rewrite your application for
each deployment device.
