In no time you have a system up and running and this book gives enouch information to extend it on your own once you have a working system.
This is a book for the practical minded engineer, for use in a project that has a deadline to keep, for testing the feasability of some idea. It gets you started in a minimum of time.
It is clearly not a book discussing all kind of possiblities of a product or technique. It is also not a book for a starting engineer, some knowledge about systems and databases is a must.
Books like this are helpfull in delivering what the customer ask in time. More books like this needs to be written.
If you are doing replication with SQL Server Compact Edition (SQLCE), this will be the best $20 you will ever spend.
In my opinion Rob has created merge replication manual on steroids. If you have any question on how to go set up a database for replication, it is answered. If you need to know about the different security strategies for setting up the SSCE Server Agent, it is covered. If you need information on setting up a publisher, distribution database and how to properly set up the tables, it is explained. If you need information how to set up your device databases as subscribers, Rob has provided that also.
Some of the most valuable information pertains to performance tuning. You will never find field proven information regarding merge replication tuning in any documentation or manual but it is in this book. There is also an appendix section that covers network load balancing should your servers require such an arrangement.Read more ›
In the book, Tiffany introduces a hypothetical company to explain all details about setting up a large distributed application. Each chapter in the book explains a particular subsystem. By making use of virtualization, it is possible for the reader to take Tiffany's example, experiment with it and built upon it. In this way, this book gets you real hands-on information that is very valuable for your day-to-day work. Tiffany starts the example by talking about securing the data and limiting the amount of users that are allowed to share / synchronize data. After covering security and showing you hands-on examples, a realistic database is introduced that will be used throughout the remainder of the book. The next important step that is described in full detail is how to configure the server correctly to distribute data amongst clients.Read more ›
