ITTIA DB SQL Enables ADO.NET Development on Android with Mono
February 27, 2013 — Bellevue, WA — ITTIA DB SQL is closing the gap between Microsoft® platforms and Android with flexible embedded data management and synchronization, accessed through the Mono framework. A cross-platform implementation of C# and the CLR, Mono is binary compatible with the Microsoft® .NET framework. ITTIA DB SQL is the leading-edge embedded database software for connected devices, with enterprise characteristics and APIs for various programming languages, including C#.
The ITTIA DB SQL ADO.NET Data Provider enables applications written in C# and Visual Basic .NET to efficiently and safely store data in a portable database file format that can be synchronized with back-end RDBMS products. With support for Mono, developers can share application code between Microsoft® Windows® and Android. In particular, applications written in C# for Windows Mobile® and Windows Phone® can now use the same great database technology on Android.
Added value for Android developers includes row-level concurrency, data distribution to back-end databases such as Oracle and SQL Server, secure storage, replication, and many other important offerings provided by a professional company. ITTIADB SQL is ideal for embedded and mobile devices, with database files that can be opened directly from the application process or by connecting to a server process on the device or over the network. Developers can use the familiar ADO.NET classes to fetch data and update the database through SQL queries, or access each table directly with high-performance table cursors.
Embedded systems, including Android mobile devices, now face great demand for data distribution capabilities and interoperability with other systems. With support for Mono, ITTIA DB SQL enables data distribution between C# Android applications and back-end databases. In addition, ITTIA DB SQL includes encryption and authentication protocols to mitigate security risks faced by mission-critical Mono applications with confidential data. Using these comprehensive features, Android software developers can achieve the greatest level of data security in embedded applications by encrypting both network communications and storage media.
Android application developers can also share and communicate data stored in ITTIA DB SQL with a back-end Microsoft® SQL Server® database. ITTIA DB Sync allows developers not only to distribute mobile and embedded data between Android devices and Microsoft® SQL Server®, but also to benefit from the replication environment necessary for improvement of data availability, reliability, modularity, mobility and interoperability. ITTIA DB SQL high availability uses replication and online backup to connect databases across a system, ensuring that data is always available.
