What is the difference between the SyncOrchestrator and the SyncAgent RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am in the process of learning about the Sync Framework and I keep seeing examples that seem to do the same thing but use different approaches.  Recently I found examples that use SyncOrchestrator and others that use SyncAgent.  However, I can not find any documentation that compares these two classes that seem to have very similar features.

    Does anyone know why you would choose to use one over the other?

  • Sync Orchestrator and Sync Agent are basically the same thing.  Sync Orchestrator is what Sync Agent becaem after Sync Framework v1.
