Many developers assume that wireless will be everywhere, enabling applications to communicate with centrally located servers regardless of the user's location. Any developer who has actually tried deploying connected applications knows that this is far from reality. Users want their applications to work and want their data to be available, even if the network isn't.

Steve Lasker takes you through the various options for developing Occasionally Connected Smart Clients that operate in an offline mode as well as online. He covers how to use VS 2005's ClickOnce to deploy your smart client, how to sync technologies using SQL Mobile for Windows Mobile devices, and how to use SOA in the form of WSE and Indigo to loosely-couple your synchronization logic in the smart client and reconciliation server.
