I'm using SQL CE 3.X on my mobile. When I configure the
"Database Adapters - Windows Mobile Pocket PC CLient
Adapter", I have the following "interesting" choices:

* MobileObjects for .Net to SQL CE
* SQL Server Mobile (SQL Server CE 3.0)
* SQL Server Compact Edition

It appears to me that all three choices will work for me.
Which should I use and why?

If you are using SQL CE 3.x you will want to select the SQL Server Mobile
(SQL Server CE 3.0) adapter. There are differences in each option.

1. Mobile Objects for .NET to SQL CE - Mobile Objects is our Application
Enablement API's that allows you to embedd our sync technology and more into
your application so that you do not have to install a client onto the
device. Mobile Objects API's are supported for .NET and J2ME for Blackberry
devices. If you use the API's this is the adapter that you will select.

2. SQL Server Mobile is the most commonly used database on the Windows
Mobile 5 and Pocket PC 2003 devices. If you are writing an application that
uses SQL CE 3.0 and you sync using our onebridge client then you will use
this adapter. In this scenario you would also be able to call our client
using command line arguments to run a sync from your application.

3. SQL Server Compact Edition has one significant difference in that it
supports the Smartphone OS as well as PPC 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.

You need to make sure that the application you are writing is designed for
the correct mobile database because each mobile database will require
different installations. From your comments it looks as though you will
want to select SQL Server Mobile.

Thanks

Dan,

I just saw your second post. You will want to use the MobileObjects for
.NET to SQL CE.

Thanks
