.NET Compact Framework 3.5 Data Driven Applications


Both the SQL Server Lite and Oracle Lite mobile databases are covered in detail, from data access to data synchronization. The book explains how device features such as Bluetooth, SMS, telephony, Infrared, and Windows Contacts can be accessed via .NET CF in a real-world example, namely the mobile sales-force application. It also explains.NET CF's GDI+ features that can be used to create rich charts and reports. You learn to synchronize the mobile application with remote datasources and communicate via web services and WCF services. The book outlines performance optimization and memory management techniques on the mobile platform. It also outlines the tools and techniques available for testing, performance-tuning, deploying and debugging .NET CF enterprise applications (including Power Toys for .NET Compact Framework 3.5 from Microsoft).

This book will teach you to build robust, feature-rich enterprise applications using the .NET Compact Framework 3.5, with the help of an end-to-end real-world example of a mobile sales force application.

What you will learn from this book

  • Build data-driven mobile applications using .NET CF 3.5 on top of the SQL Server Compact and Oracle Lite databases
  • Explore many advanced features of the platform such as GDI+, marshalling, and so on with the help of real-world case studies
  • Exploit the Smart Device Framework 2.3 (SDF) library to interface with various functions of the mobile device
