How do I sync dynamically generated files from a WCF service to a device's storage? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm quite new to Sync Framework, but I have quite a challenging task at hand...

    I need to find a way to sync XML files (that are generated dynamically by a service) to a remote Windows Mobile device over a 3G connection.  The files should then be saved on the remote device.

    I understand that I should use a FileSyncProvider as the destination provider on the client side (ie. the mobile device), but I have NO idea how to implement a custom provider that will enable me to send files from the server as a remote provider.  I am also very unsure of how to change the transport layer for the remote provider to use a web service/WCF instead of communicating locally.

    Could someone point me in the right direction?  Is Sync Framework the right tool for doing this?

    Kind Regards,

    Johann de Swardt
