Programming Remote Data Access

In the preceding sample, you saw how to create a local SQL Server CE database in code, and then used it with some of the SqlServerCe objects. However, in practice many applications will require you to load data from a central database, make changes or additions locally, and then send your changes back to the central SQL Server database so that other users can see them. RDA is the first of two techniques this chapter covers for loading and updating a central SQL Server database (the second is covered later, in the section "Using Merge Replication").
