Firstly I really like the framework based on what I have seen with the sample app :)
My app needs to have an auto-update feature (which I will be creating through the Mobile App Blocks from P&P) which will retrieve not only updates to the current assemblies that make up the system but also new ones that will support needed hardware functionality
such as RFID, Bar code and GPS.
The retrieved assemblies may also be for new user features that each require their own UI (which must be dynamically created as needed) as well as non-UI process or agent type of features.
Does the framework cater for this? (Basically I need to get past using the ProfileCatalog.xml for loading assemblies as this is too static and I will not know the assemblies at design time)
If so, any advice on how best to achieve what I need?
Regarding the DAL, you seem to centralise all data access for all modules in one project. This obviously limits my ability to provide completely independent modules which contains their own views, presents and DAL code. Any recommendations on how to use
the framework to achieve this?
How does this framework compare to the current Mobile App Blocks http://mobile.codeplex.com/ and the Container Model which is being pushed by MS P&P?
