SQL Server - WinCE
« on: April 24, 2018, 10:27:36 pm »

I would like to know if it is possible to establish a TCP/IP connection to SQL Server on WinCE platform.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks & regards,

Wrote a program to connect a WinCE to a database many years ago and had to do it through a middle ware program.

WinCE    <->   lNet or other network messaging program  <->  Middleware  <-> Database

It is best to only connect the WinCE to the middleware when messages are being sent and received. Persistent connections can be unstable and cause problems.

Free Pascal relies on the FreeTDS library for its TMSSQLConnection. So if someone could get the library working for WinCE then the compilation of the mssqlconn unit could be enabled for WinCE as well and you'd be good to go...
