  • No.  You'll need to use something like OData to provide a means to access your data.  See: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/interoperability/archive/2012/02/09/open-source-odata-tools-for-mysql-and-php-developers.aspx

    The main Assemblies for desktop will not work on Phone or Store apps.

  • Hi,

    additionally to the post above: You cannot directly access a MySQL database. What you can do is to create a service wrapper for your database operations. This will expose all operations you'll need in a simple way (f.e. as an ASP.NET Web API or WCF service).
