Authors Dan Fox and Jon Box walk students through four essential architectural concepts and programming techniques, using extensive examples and code listings to show them how to develop more robust mobile development projects. The book briefly describes the context, architecture, and features of both the Framework and Smart Device Programmability (SDP). The heart of the book is its in-depth coverage of key architectural concepts, including local data handling, remote data access (RDA) architectures, robust data caching with SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition 2.0 (SQL CE 2.0), and synchronization options. The focus then shifts to localization, security, and deployment, and the final chapter steers students away from potential pitfalls.
