Getting Started tutorial

Discussion in 'ActiveSync' started by Jason Erickson, Apr 6, 2006.

  1. I'm an experienced Java developer and have taught myself some C#. My C and
    C++ experience is old and I have very little experience with COM. I've
    written an application on .NET Compact Framework, but I need to sync it and I
    can't find anything that's like a step-by-step walkthrough or tutorial for
    developing ActiveSync applications.

    I see lots of stuff saying what COM interfaces I have to implement, but I
    have a hard time putting that information into context. If there was a toy
    application walkthrough or even an example project/solution, I think I pull
    myself up the rest of the way. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to
    get started?

  2. When you say, "sync it", what do you mean by that? You need to write a
    syncing engine to transfer custom data generated by your device application
    to a different format on the desktop?

  3. I guess I should have pointed you to this immediately, too:

    Find the folder where the Pocket PC SDK you are using is installed. Usually
    this is something like:

    D:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce420\POCKET PC 2003\Activesync

    You'll find some examples there.

  4. Pretty much. More precisely, the desktop application will be submitting
    changes to a server and may or may not be storing them locally, whichever is
    easier. So I have a device app with data that I want to get to a server
    through ActiveSync.

    But I think I need baby steps. Like how would I do it if I had a single
    collection of simple records (say name and phone number) on the device and a
    copy on the desktop and I want to sync them up when the device connects.
