13. Windows Phone 7 > Storing data in a local SQL CE database

Storing data in a local SQL CE database

Isolated Storage is a good way of storing data locally on the device. With the release of Windows Phone Mango (7.5), an option was added to support a client-side database. This database is a SQL CE (Compact Edition) database. SQL CE databases are file-based and in the case of WP7, the database file is stored as a physical file inside the Isolated Storage. As developers, we can talk to the database using LINQ to SQL.

In this recipe, we'll introduce the local database to store the downloaded list of Blu-rays.

Getting ready

This recipe uses a starter solution, which can be found in the Chapter13/BluRayCollector_Database_Starter. The finished solution can be found in the Chapter13/BluRayCollector_Push_Notifications_Completed folder.
