Deployed database with the App

Sep 17, 2010 at 4:19 PM

Has anyone thought about how to ship an app with windowsphonedb database?

I have very little Silverlight experience, hence the question.

Also, I wanted to populate the database with data present in text files.

What would the best way of going about this?

Can I generate the serialized db on the PC (using the silverlightphonedb.dll) and somehow copy it to the isolated storage?

Thoughts/ideas welcome.

All you have to do is reference the DLL in your app.  It will be packaged with your app.

As far as pre-populating goes, there is an outstanding request to add this feature.  I am trying to work it into my schedule right now.  I hope to have it done before phone ships - within the next few weeks.
