I’m confused

Deploying Code on time to Internet webserver

Hello, I just have a few questions and I'm hoping someone can help me

1) I was wondering if it was possible to have a code on time database running from a website so that people from multiple locations can access it.

2) If it is possible to create and host the database on a webserver can I still build a local copy of the data base so that it can sync with the server on an Ad-hoc basis.

3) Are any instructions on how to achieve any of the above.

Thank you kindly

  • You can create a database and generate an application using CoT from it. Both can be hosted with commercial web-hosting providers.

    It sounds as if you want to know if it is possible to create a "disconnected" application.

    The code generator comes with IIS Express, which is a lightweight version of the commercial IIS installed on production web servers. We use IIS Express to run the generated site when you do development.

    You can create a Microsoft SQL Server database with replication option and install local databases controlled by Microsoft SQL Express on the computers of the travelling personnel (agents) that must work without being connected to Internet. Run the same application on the server with production IIS and on agent's laptops with IIS Express. SQL Server replication will take care of the rest.

    Read about data replication at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libra....

    The applications generated with Code On Time will not be aware of the replication taking place. IIS Express will allow agents to run the site of the laptops without Internet connection. IIS Express will run on Windows XP and 7 of all editions.
