A Mobile Application to Access Remote Database Using Web Services
The authors have seen over the years that the process of manual attendance has been carried outacross almost all educational institutions. The process is not only time consuming but also sometimes inefficient resulting in the false marking of attendance. Today, they need not maintain pen and paper based attendance registers. Following this thought, they have proposed an attendance monitoring system based on the concept of web services which is implemented as an Android mobile application that communicates with the database residing on a remote server. The mobile application would require connecting to the database using either General Packet Radio Service(GPRS) or WiFi technology.
