How to update database of wpf client applications ??

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi, I have a WPF Windows application with sqlite database which we distribute to our clients. The application consists of some database table which changes every month. eg. the application users a  exchange rate table which is valid for one month. What is the best approach to update the data in these table. Please note that the whole application is not changing but only the data in it changing, no change to structur of the database or table. Please guide me with some options how I can achieve this task. Thank You. Mohamed Ziyad

SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

WinInet: Enable HTTP Communication in Windows-Based Client Applications


The Internet provides the infrastructure for applications to communicate, and that can include non-UI communication between Win32-based applications. If you think beyond the standard browser usage of HTTP, you can use this protocol to retrieve information from Win32-based applications and save it to a Web server. After explaining how HTTP can be used in this way, this article shows how to use Microsoft SQL Server, ASP, IIS, WinInet, and Visual Basic to implement two examples. The first reports usage data-how often an application is used and by whom. The second monitors application errors and reports error details for use by helpdesk staff or engineers in the debugging process.

connect client certificate to an account in a membership database

Hello I have created a web service that authenticates with username and password, works fine.Basically this one, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff649647.aspxNow I also want to connect to this web service using client certificates, works finehttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc948997.aspx But I would like to when authenticated via client certificates, connect that certificate to a user in the membership database.So that I can use Roles.IsUserInRole(...) and such.I thought that, well if I implement a Custom certificate Validatorhttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733806.aspxthen I could check for example subject and map that against a created username in the membership database.But in the class X509CertificateValidatorpublic override void Validate(X509Certificate2 certificate)I don't have the same ability as when the user is authenticatedlike  void OnAuthenticateRequest(object source, EventArgs eventArgs)HttpApplication app = (HttpApplication)source;Basically how can I do this app.Context.User = new GenericPrincipal(new GenericIdentity(username, "Membership Provider"),roles);withinpublic override void Validate(X509Certificate2 certificate)and if that is not possible, can this be solved differently?Bottom line, how do I connect a client certificate to a user account in the membership database. Is there a MSDN article
