Need information on how to build application which can handle offline data RRS feed

  • Question


    I have only been working with application using data within LAN.   Now, I need to enhance the application to use offline data.   First, my understanding of offline data can be a subset of the origianl data or a copy of the original data which are stored in laptops or other mobile hardware.  What are some important areas that I should research?   Does the Data Access Applicatoin Block in Enterprise Library handle offline data?

  • When you say 'offline' do you mean data stored on the local laptop? If so, have you considered XML data storage? I would envision this working with the user first connecting 'online' to the main data source and then the application copying that into an XML document which could then be reference once the user disconnects from the main data source.


    Hope this helped.
