Which database for local Windows Store apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need a database for Windows Store apps that we'll send/receive data to/from the server database when the computer is within Wi-Fi (we'll poll every 30 seconds or so).

    Microsoft (as usual) confuses me with "LocalDB", "SQLExpress", and other.  I'm told some open-source product called
    "SQLLite" is the way to go because the Microsoft products won't work with Windows Store dev.  Is this true?

    Which should I use, please?  I find it hard to believe Microsoft's own products won't work with their own apps.  If it is true, are they working on remedying the situation?

  • Sqlite is the common recommendation. As you nite, SQLexpress, etc. are not supported in Windows Store apps.
