2-tier architecture for devices? RRS feed

  • Question

  • It appears you can do 2-tier development with Microsoft Synchronization Services for ADO.NET 1.0 but can you also do 2-tier with MSS for ADO.NET 1.0 for Devices?

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Anthony,

     

    Out of the box you can't use a two tier configuration on devices.  In theory this is something that you could build (by for instance creating a server provider) but for devices in particular we didn't feel that architecture made sense.  Other than for ease of development is there some blocking issue for setting up a 3-tier scheme?

  • afaik, you cant. I dont think the ADO.NET for Devices has complete runtime support for devices.

  • Hi Mike

    I guess additional complexity and more failure points, short of that mostly curiosity.
