Mobile Client Software Factory – CTP Release

The CTP release of the Mobile Client Software Factory is out.
The Mobile Client Software Factory provides an integrated set of guidance to help architects and developers create line-of-business Windows Mobile applications that interact with back-end systems over various networks (WiFi, GPRS, etc.) that might be intermittently available. A mobile smart client line-of-business application has one or more of the following characteristics:

* It has a rich user interface that takes advantage of the power of the Windows Mobile device.
* It connects to and exchanges data with multiple back-end systems through a gateway server through the most cost effective underlying network technology.
* It takes advantage of local caching and processing to enable operation during periods of no network connectivity or intermittent network connectivity.
* It is easily deployed and configured.
* It keeps local, potentially confidential information secure.

In short the Mobile Client Software Factory contains the following goodies :

  • Composite UI Application Block ported into the .NET Compact Framework
  • Application blocks
  • Guidance Automation Toolkit
  • Quick Starts Examples
  • Reference Implementation
