eBook Description:

Pro Sync Framework

The Sync Framework is Microsoft’s latest innovation to deal with the dilemma of occasionally connected systems. It is a comprehensive synchronization platform that enables collaboration and offline access for applications, services, and devices. In particular, it features technologies and tools that enable device roaming, sharing, and the ability to take networked data offline before synchronizing it back to the networked application at a later time.

Pro Sync Framework concludes with a working example that shows how the techniques you’ve learned can be used to create a versatile application, adaptable to a wide variety of connectivity and synchronization challenges.

The Sync Framework is an extension addition to Microsoft’s .NET 3.5 Framework to improve its ability deal with occasionally connected applications, such as those on mobile devices such as smart phones and laptop computers that do not have a single reliable means of connecting to their data sources. The Sync framework allows such applications to operate smoothly both online and offline, connecting to data in a wide variety of different ways (networked, wireless, cell-phone data protocols, etc.).

This book gives readers everything they need to start implementing Sync coding strategies within their own applications. It takes a hands-on practical approach to ensure readers are able to apply their skills practically and concludes with a worked case-study chapter to reinforce this point.

What you’ll learn

  • Explore the subject through text written in a tight, code-centric style that focuses on the issues you need to know.
  • Learn through a hands-on approach that demonstrates the techniques practically rather than talking about them theoretically.
  • See how it works through a step-by-step guide to mastering the framework.
  • Understand the coding best-practices that are developing for the Sync Framework.
  • Explore a fully worked sample application that shows all the concepts in action.

Who this book is for

This book is aimed at Microsoft .NET developers who want to use the Sync Framework to enable their applications to switch seamlessly between online and offline data access modes. Because the authors concentrate on Sync and do not cover the basics of the .NET Framework, this book is suitable for intermediate developers and upward.
