This tutorial describes how to use AppForge Crossfire to build an UltraLite application for Windows CE or Palm OS. At the end of the tutorial you will have an application and small database on your Windows CE device that synchronizes with a central consolidated database.
For more information about the table API, see UltraLite for AppForge API Reference.
The tutorial takes about 30 minutes if you copy and paste the code. If you enter the code yourself, it takes significantly longer. If you chose to copy and paste the code from this help information, the special characters less-than, greater-than and ampersand may be pasted incorrectly in the code window and have to be manually corrected.
This tutorial assumes that you have AppForge Crossfire installed on your computer. It also assumes a basic familiarity with Crossfire development.
The tutorial also assumes that you know how to create an UltraLite database using the command line utility ulcreate, or using UltraLite in Sybase Central. See Creating an UltraLite database from Sybase Central.
Crossfire users can perform most of this tutorial without SQL Anywhere. The synchronization sections of the tutorial require SQL Anywhere.
