hub-spoke configuration with SqlExpress 2008 and SqlServer 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've investigated MS Sync framework in the last few days. It looks good, but the scenario I'd like implement doesn't seem to be natively supported. Here are the key reqs:

    • MSSqlServer 2008 as server (central repository)
    • SQLExpress2008 as client (hubs)
    • no additional tables, triggers on the dbs to track changes -> I want to leverage the "Track changes" feature of SQLServer 2008 on both server and client...I don't want to re-invent the wheel

    I see that there are samples to use "Track Changes" of SQL 2008, but they use SQLCE as client. All the samples with SQLExpress have a custom implementation to track changes (and are part of the "Collaboration" scenarios, not the "Offline" scenario which is what mine really is).

    I know there were discussions very similar to this, but they are quite old.

    I was wondering whether we can expect something from MS sometime soon. The scenario I exposed above should be quite common.

    thanks in advance,
