  • What language and UI layer are you using for your Windows Store app? If you'll let us know we can move you to the appropriate forum.

    Are you looking for a local database option or to connect to a remote database?

    The standard local database recommendation is to use SQLite. For remote databases you can connect to anything which supports access via web service.

  • Thanks for the response.
    Yes, i'm looking for local databases like sql express or oracle or mysql, and i'm using c# development (xaml) for my metro style app.

    So, is there any other DB except SqLite? and can i apply entity codefirst model for SqLite?

    Regards,

  • In my case I am using VB (XAML) and looking for a way to have several tablets access a common copy of the database either in SkyDrive or on a local shared drive.  Would SQLite work this way?  have also heard VB wrapper for SQLite is slow?  Any thoughts?  Anybody actually try this?
