    Online Database Stuff --> Palm

    Lets say I have a database run on a Lotus Notes Server(doesn't really matter what the database is). The database powers a small web application restricted to about 200 people. I would like to export certain data to a palm device using a single hotsync and have it be readable and retrievable later in time. Im thinking this would be a touch different than a simple WML setup since the user wont be connected to the database while they are viewing the content. My problem is that I'm not sure where to start. Any ideas as to some technologies I should be investigating to accomplish this? I'm looking for something that does not require Palm side programming(application development) if possible. Thanks.

    The easiest way would be to set up a series of dynamic Intranet Web pages for the Palm interface and sync it to the device using AvantGo.

    There are alternative methods, but none as quick and easy.
