Authors Dan Fox and Jon Box walk you through four essential architectural concepts and programming techniques, using extensive examples and code listings to show you how to develop more robust mobile development projects. The book briefly describes the context, architecture, and features of both the Framework and Smart Device Programmability (SDP). The heart of the book is its in-depth coverage of key architectural concepts, including local data handling, remote data access (RDA) architectures, robust data caching with SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition 2.0 (SQL CE 2.0), and synchronization options. The focus then shifts to localization, security, and deployment, and the final chapter steers you away from potential pitfalls. You will find helpful pointers to further resources throughout, and a companion Web site includes the source code and links to more information. This book can be read cover to cover or the focus can be narrowed to key points of interest. It can also be used as a reference, with answers to questions such as:When should you architect and build your applications using the Compact Framework and SDP? Chapter 1 What factors besides cost should you consider when planning your company's first Smart Device application? Chapter 4Can RDA allow SQL CE to interact with database products other than SQL Server? Chapter 7How should you handle differences in time zone for users of a world-ready application? Chapter 8How can you overcome the Compact Framework's inability to marshal complex objects within structures? Chapter 11Both comprehensive and concise, Building Solutions with the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework shows you how to bring the power of .NET to your mobile applications.
