Pocket PC Database Development with Embedded Visual Basic

THERE HASN'T BEEN A better time to begin developing applications for handhelds. In the last four years, we have seen a tremendous leap in the functional capabili- ties offered by handheld computing platforms, which has culminated in the rich interfaces we see in the current crop of Windows CE-embedded systems. The Pocket PC platform is particularly compelling because it is truly portable, and it has a great color interface and solid application integration...

Excellent book to start eVB & ADOCE

This is a great book if you want to start programming eVB and ADOCE. The book walks you through a complete "Pocket Access" Database Manager that you will be able to complete at the end of the book. You will learn everything that is required to create and manage databases, menus, SQL, etc. I gave it just 4 stars because it cover the basics, which is good, but doesn't go deeper in detail. The reading is easy and makes you want to read more. Now that eVB is not supported in the new operating systems (Pocket PC 2003, Win CE .NET) you should go for his other book using Microsoft Server CE.

How fast can you say "Instant Databases" ??

If you are a serious developer, more sooner than later you'll need databases and this book gives you a quick start on how to develop them, with the enclosed examples you get answers on (almost) everything, chapter 7 has a good DB Manager, which is worth the money all by itself. You'll be developing databases, even on the road, quicker than others can prepare instant coffee. Only thing that's missing is a review of Pocket SQL and how to develop networked databases, but for that you can get: Developer's Guide With Microsoft Embedded Visual Basic and you are all set. Both books together cover it all, but this one is the easiest and very comprehensive for all kinds of tasks, don't miss it, it's a two thumbs up.

Long overdue - a dedicated eVB ver 3.0 book

I first heard about this book a few month ago from Rob Tiffany and was very enthuisiastic and happy to hear it was in development since eVB really needs a book dealing with database programming. I received my copy of the book last week (Aug 1st 2001) and was very impressed. The book is concise, with the chapters and content laid out in a succinct and logical manner making for an easy read. Rob discusses the limitations and approach to Pocket SQL from both a data definition and data manipulation perspective. He also discusses the architectural framework required to build Pocket Access based applications from a practical "this is what will work" point of view; for example how to address the infamous ADOCE connection memory leak. The book rounds out with the construction of a graphical eVB application which you can use to manage Pocket Access databases on your Pocket PC. If you are starting out using eVB and Pocket Access this book is a must have in your library!
