This is the first book on the market to focus on Database Development for the Pocket PC using Microsoft's free eMbedded Visual Basic 3. Tiffany's book is designed to get software developers up to speed building Pocket Access database applications using eMbedded Visual Basic on the Pocket PC. The author has put his own Visual Basic background to work in developing advanced Pocket PC applications for large energy companies and it is from this perspective that he guides professional Visual Basic and Access programmers into the world of embedded software development. Tiffany's book gradually ramps up the reader's skills with each chapter building upon the previous one. After explaining the subset of the SQL language available on the Pocket PC, he guides the reader through ADOCE and ActiveSync in order to build and communicate with both local Pocket Access databases as well as remote SQL Server databases.
