Chapter 9. Synchronization Services for ADO.NET 2.0: Peer-to-Peer Synchronization

Synchronization Services for ADO.NET 2.0, which is part of the Microsoft Sync Framework, enables synchronization between ADO.NET-enabled databases. As we discussed, in offline scenarios, the data is stored directly on the user's device in an offline cache such as a SQL Server Compact Edition (CE) database, and users can access data directly from the local device. Users can then synchronize this local client database with a server database such as a SQL Server database.

Now consider a scenario in which there are multiple clients requesting data from a server that is not reachable or offline. Sync Services for ADO.NET 2.0 provides a solution for this scenario by allowing clients or peers to share data with each other. This scenario, in which peers can synchronize data with other peers without having to go through a central server, is called a collaboration scenario. This chapter explores how to use Sync Services for ADO.NET 2.0 for collaboration scenarios.
