FileSyncProvider + WCF RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi -

    I have been unable to open the link that you provide. Have you looked into our FileSyncProvider to see if that matches your needs. We are planning on coming out with a sample for V2 that shows you how to write a matching FileSyncProvider using WCF that will let you sync local files with remote files.

    Thanks

  • Hi Philo, 

    You can find a FileSyncProvider sample in Sync Framework 2.0 CTP2 SDK which you can start playing with. 

    Once you install the SDK, the sample can be found under:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Microsoft Sync Framework\v2.0\Samples

    In Sync Framework 2.0 RTM release, we are going to add a new sample to demostrate how to write a matching FileSyncProvider using WCF. Please keep an eye on our sync blog for dates as 2.0 RTM becomes available.

    Thanks,
    Nina

  • Hi Diego,

    I dig out an old sample that fits your needs perfectly:
    http://bryantlikes.com/archive/2008/01/03/remote-file-sync-using-wcf-and-msf.aspx

    Besides, Sync Framework 2.0 has been released in Oct and we recently added a new sample to do file synchronization with a Simple Custom Provider.

    Thanks for your support and feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,
    Nina

  • Hi

    That's great. I'm looking forward to finishing Sync 2.0. SyncFX is a real treasure.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Nina,

    I am looking forward to this sample too.

    I tried to translate to CTP 2 the sample that the author mentioned, but not successfully. I'm a rookie about the MSF.

    Any ideia when this will be available ?

    Thanks,
    Diego

  • I was wondering if anyone created the sample referenced in the post on 9-23-09: 

    "We are planning on coming out with a sample for V2 that shows you how to write a matching FileSyncProvider using WCF that will let you sync local files with remote files".

    It would be very helpful for me to get a sample  of a two way Remote File Sync Provider that I can use in my application.

    thank you,
    Jeremy

  • Hi guys,

    I managed to update Bryant Likes' sample to run on MSF 2.0, but I don't think this solution is complete (possibly even not stable enough) for real production use. For example, it does only one-way sync and I think it doesn't do any conflict resolution. It needs some more work - and frankly, I'm not sure it's worth it. If you're interested, you can find the code here:

  • Are there any working samples yet of FileSyncProvider over WCF. I have a mission critical application which needs to include this functionality and it is due in a week. I am sweating bullets here. Anyone give me any help?
    Tuesday, June 29, 2010 2:07 PM
  • I was wondering if you ever got around to creating that sample? I am in desperate need of it. Thank you so very much.

  • Hi,

    Is there a FileSyncProvider sample using WCF NOW available? I could so much use that. Will greatly appreciate if you could point me to where I can get them or any clue as to how to go about getting it done.

    Thanks a ton.

    Hi Microsoft

    Why are these last few posts never answered?

    If the answer is that the framework is not really useful for syncing files over WCF then I think, for not letting us (developers) throwing away valuable time, that you should be honest and inform us of such,
    otherwise (hopefully), please give a useful answer making this not a rocket science for each and every developer needing this mode of syncing.
