    Hi Manikandan,

    The smart way to do this is not to develop a Windows CE application, but instead develop a web application.

    This will allow you to use the DI Server for interaction with the B1 system, and you are no longer dependent on VS2008, and more importantly you will not be dependent on the mobile device's operating system.

    Please note that when you need to replace your PDA(s) some time in the near future, the operating system will no longer be the same, and an application developed for Windows CE would have to be rebuilt to work on whatever operating system the new device is running.

    A web application will work on any hand held device that has a browser (including even smart phones). So next time you need to replace your device(s) you can choose the best option for you, instead of being forced to buy the one model that is still running Windows CE.

    Regards,

    Johan

    Hi Manikandan,

    You can not use SQL query to validate the password. You will need to use a webservice and the device should communicate through this WS
    You have 3 options:
    1. Create your own webservice.
    2. Create a webservice that wraps DI Server.
    3. Create a webservice that wraps the B1if.

    Regards
