    Hi,

  • With the IP licensing model it will be supported. but you will be responsible to port, build and test it.

  • We are coming up with a way for OEM's to port this.  We will post more updates when we release the Microsoft Sync framework in 2008.

  • If you need more information on licensing terms to port source code to other platforms you can email iplg@microsoft.com

     

    From the Microsoft Sync Framework EULA:

     

    "Microsoft is also licensing specifications and a source code porting kit to developers who want to implement Microsoft Sync Framework solutions on non-Windows platforms.  For more information on the specification/porting kit licensing program, please contact iplg@microsoft.com."

  • Well how about the DB support, the documentation clearly says that the Sync framework supports heterogenous databases, does that refer only to the databases on the server or also on the device,

     

    I would like to know whether client/ device DB's like OracleLite, PocketAccess and DB2e will be supported for syncing or only SQL Server Everywhere or SQL Server CE runtime will have to be used on the client side
