A post on the SQL Mobile blog points to an upcoming software that will enable the synchronisation of SQL 2005 Mobile running on a Windows Mobile device to a Microsoft Access database running on a desktop computer.
ADOCE is not supported in Windows Mobile 2005 and those customers/ISVs that used ADOCE to synchronize CEDB with Access desktop database are seeing a gap in this functionality. Hence these customers/ISVs don’t have a good migration path when they move to Windows Mobile 2005. To address this functionality gap we are implementing Sync with Access to synchronize SQL Mobile with Access. Customers/ISVs can migrate from CEDB/ADOCE to SQL Mobile/Sync with Access. Providing SQL Mobile synchronization with MS Access will also speed up the SQL Mobile adoption. A solution developed using SQL Mobile/SSEV and MS Access sync will have the capability to scale up to SQL Mobile/SSEV and SQL Server replication solution.
The beta for this solution should be available in August 2006 and a final release before end of 2006.
About time to have this. When the deimplementation of ADOCE synchronisation to Access was announced, Microsoft promised a solution. It looks like it is going to happen, sooner or later.
