Am i thinking right

Post by hobbit666 » Thu 07 Sep 2006 12:14

I'm trying to make a application for a PDA that displays data from a SQL server via ODBC.

I know Windows CE/Mobile does not support ODBC.

So to get my application to display the data from the database i need a 3rd party connector/provider e.g. UniDirect?

Also is UniDirect for VB Application or Webservices Applications?

UniDirect .NET is data provider to universal data access to different databases for the Microsoft .NET Framework. It supports most of major database servers such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, MySQL, PostgreSQL and others through OLE DB and ODBC.
The provider is completely based on ADO.NET technology and can be used in the same way as the SQL Server .NET or the OLE DB .NET Data Provider. At the same time UniDirect .NET doesn't implement database specific access layer for all databases, it uses native ADO.NET providers and based on their functionality.
