Hi all,

Now that Windows Phone 7 has been released for a while and the SQL Anywhere
team have finished releasing Ultralite for iPhone and Android, what are your
thoughts for the feasibility of supporting Windows Phone 7 and whether it is
likely to be on the roadmap for development?

Thanks,

Shao

Hi Shao,

Windows Phone 7 is not on our current roadmap. As it stands now, it
would need a complete rewrite of UltraLite in managed code, which would
be a major effort. We are attempting to find out whether Microsoft has
plans to add unmanaged code support to Windows Phone 7, which would make
supporting the platform much better from our point of view (easier) and
from the end user point of view (performance).

Hi Tom,

Thanks very much for that response. It's interesting to know.

I assume that although we have C# applications written for WM6.5. accessing
and MS SQL Server Compact Edition on Windows Mobile 6.5.3., whilst the C# is
portable, the MS SQL Server itself is possibly unmanaged code which is why
Microsoft is not porting it across to Windows Phone 7 at the moment.

Cheers,

Shao

Hi Shao,

Actually I think MS SQL Server Compact is present on the device, but
they don't expose it to third party applications. I believe it is used
for contacts management, for example.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for that. That seems logical. I mean, most systems usually have a
database to hold some kind of information.

And as far as I know all databases are currently unmanaged code.

It will be interesting to see how things work out with Windows Phone 7. I
believe that Microsoft will bow to pressure. Databases and software like
SatNav will be essential for the OS to be competitive, so I think its only a
matter of time.

Cheers,

Shao

Hi Tom,

I am not sure if the above is a good thing or not. Microsoft may be
exposing use of their own database on Windows Phone 7. However, I guess
that third parties will have to fight together to get their own database
software on there.

This might be something iAnywhere need to actively monitor if they want any
hope of getting Ultralite running on WP7.

Cheers,

Shao
