Best Practices with Synch Services with Astoria (ADO.NET Web Services) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any best practices when using Synch Services with Astoria?  I haven't acually found any documentation that says this is even possible, but I did see something that said Synch supports ATOM, and so that might mean that I can synch against WebServices.


    Also, if Synch does work against Astoria/ADO.NET Web Services, does it support the Modified-Since header to reduce network traffic?


    Lastly, is there any pattern I should follow to integrate synch services into a WPF and WPF/e application that will maximise code reuse (or cut and paste)?  It doesn't seem like there would be any Silverlight client coming out any time soon.  Should I just decorate microsoft generated proxy code with interfaces and call the objects that way?  Seems like a bit of a hassle that I would like to avoid.

  • Sync services with Astoria is something that we have been thinking about. We will let you know when we have something on those lines.

    Meanwhile, you can sync with a web service where this web service can act as a simple participant. Take a look at this article that explains a bit more. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sync/bb821992.aspx
