    Hi,

    I need an application  working without network.

    I was wondering if I could Use Silverlight to do this.

    I explain :

    Server Side :
    _ SQL SERVER 2005 with all the REAL data.
    _ possibility to have WCF

    Client Side :
    _I'm not sure to have administrator right to install an application.
    _ I CANT install  SQL SERVER, I need a transparent Database in my application (for example SQL lite).
    _ when no network, I need to have the Client working with a copy of the data, and to synchronize with the server when the network connection is back.

    I wanted to use http://sqlite.phxsoftware.com/
    But it seems that Silverlight isn't compatible with ADO.NET, so i will have some problems.

    Does Telerik Bring something interesting in this problem ?
    Something able to resolve my problem.


    Have you any Idea, thx.

    Hello,

    You could use Silverlight 3 Out of Browser application - I guess that you should be easily able to resolve most of the networking problems, related to the network outages:

    Regarding SQL Lite database support. As you might already know, we provide a product, called OpenAccess, that supports six databases:
    http://www.telerik.com/products/orm/features.aspx#support-for-6-databases
    QSL Lite is not one of them, but there are other free solutions, such as MySql for example, that you could choose from.

    On the other hand, there are plenty of providers for the MS Entity Framework ORM, you could search the Internet for a provider for SQL Lite. Since most of the MS web service Frameworks (ADO.NET Data Services, RIA Services) are based on EF, this could be a nice option too.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Arnaud,

    Unfortunately there nothing we can do to make SQLite work on platforms it doesn't currently support.
