Movie Rental API and iOS Application
This was developed as a courseware project for Relational Database Management Systems. The objective of the project was to develop an API interface using pHp and MySQL.
I decided to use iOS as the Front-End since I had experience working on iOS apps before and wantend to get into server communication and message exchange via the iOS.
The front- end design was inspired by another iOS application:
Once the User Interface was complete, it was time to implement all the modules of the application.
We developed pHp scripts to communicate with the backend MySQL server and generated the replies to the query in XML. To interpret these XML files on the iOS device, a custom XML parser was developed.
