    Hi,

    I have just seen a blog post from Tim Heuer about using sqlite in a windows store app and wanted others thoughts.

    http://timheuer.com/blog/archive/2012/08/07/updated-how-to-using-sqlite-from-windows-store-apps.aspx?

     

    Has any one else used it yet on arm architecture (surface rt)? Is it possible to persist across application life-cycles e.g. if I need to sync with external data source and there is no internet connection from the time the app  has started to ended and then restarted etc. I guess this would be mimicking a real live rdms e.g. could I persist the state of the sqllite contents to Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.* ?

     

    thanks

    Dean

    @dvr123: A small persistent database is what SQLite is great at. You can feed it a path, and it creates a .SQLite file that you can do what you want with.
