Download Schema Changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently using MS Sync services for ADO.NET with manual change tracking option. I need to update client db schema if there is a change. One way is to genearate the adapters at runtime so that the server schema is available in the client. Is there any other easy way to get the schema changes ?

  • What are the providers you are using?

  • Why dont you move the SQL Server Change Tracking. Its better than custom tracking as you dont have to manage tombstone database etc. When the schema changes, in case of Sql Server Change Tracking, its automatically downloaded.

  • using SQL Change Tracking wont help you address schema changes. Sync Framework itself doesnt handle schema changes.

    Viswanth, out of curiosity why are you using the older provider?
