Hi all,

What's the latest on Ultralite on WP7?

In WP7.1 (Mango), support for Microsoft's CE database (unmanaged code) is
there.

What's the situation with third party databases? Are they changing their
position, required it to be a signed application, or not budging?

Thanks,

Shao

Hi Shao,

There doesn't seem to be any indication (as far as we know) that 3rd
parties can implement the LINQ to SQL runtime that WP7.1 is using to
provide apps with local DB storage. We're also not aware yet of native
apps being permitted on WP7.

So, nothing has really changed with regard to UL [un]availability on WP7.

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the response. I think that's a great shame.

The two strengths of the SQL Anywhere Suite are:
- Mobilink
- Ultralite - a database that sits on the current leading mobile platforms
As they change, applications built on these technologies can be ported with
minimal concern to the remote database and synchronisation layers.

I think its unfair if Microsoft's own database can be used but not third
parties. I would consider it anti-competitive. And in terms of
managed/unmanaged code, I doubt that Microsoft have written their SQL CE
database from the ground up in managed code (although I could be wrong) as
this would be a fair amount of effort and would result in a product that
sacrifices performance.

Thanks for the update.

Cheers,

Shao
