Support for Web Data Services (astoria)? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Will I be able to use Synch Services when going through Astoria (ADO.NET Web Data Services)?

     

    I'd like to do this from either a Full .NET 3.5 client, or a Silverlight client using isolated storage.

     

    Thanks

  • Chris,

     

    Will you be attending PDC this year?  If so, you may want to check out the following sessions:

     

    SQL Server: Database to Data Platform - Road from Server to Devices to the Cloud

    Presenter: David Campbell


     

    Cloud-based data services will change the way you develop and deploy applications, and SQL Server technologies are evolving to help you build data-driven solutions that span devices, desktops, servers, and the cloud. Learn how to use ADO.NET Data Services Framework (code name "Astoria"), SQL Server Data Services (SSDS), and the Microsoft Sync Framework. Hear how to build applications that can be deployed using SSDS in the cloud or SQL Server on-premises, and learn how to gain insights using the BI capabilities of Microsoft SQL Server.

     

     

    Offline-Enabled Data Services and Desktop Applications

    Presenter: Pablo Castro


     

    The ADO.NET Data Services Framework (a.k.a. Project "Astoria") introduced a way of creating and consuming flexible, data-centric REST services. By combining data services with the Microsoft Sync Framework, learn how to create offline-capable applications that have a local replica of their data, how to synchronize that replica with an online data service when a network connection becomes available, and how replicas can be used with the ADO.NET Entity Framework. Also, hear us talk about our plans, see the tools that help client- and server-side setup, and discuss the runtime components and APIs.

     

    Astoria does not currently support the Sync Framework but as you can see from the session descriptions above, it is definitely a compelling scenario that is on our radar.

    Aaah I see.

     

    So I can infer that the the synch client may not only support Astoria but SSDS as well.  That is good news, but may add a bit of complexity, and hope it doesn't delay the Astoria piece of the puzzle.

     

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend PDC this year due to budget cuts... unless you have any free tickets Smile
