Synchronizing Web Feeds

This section of the Sync Framework documentation describes Web feed synchronization components (referred to as Sync Services for FeedSync in previous releases). The web feed producer and consumer components can be used to synchronize the data of another type of replica with an RSS or Atom feed. The web feed synchronization provider services can be used to write a provider that represents a FeedSync XML file as its replica. For more information about FeedSync, see the FeedSync Web site. This section provides basic conceptual information and how-to topics that include managed and unmanaged code. Additional samples are available in the Sync Framework SDK and on Code Gallery.

The following topics provide introductory information about Sync Framework. If you are already familiar with these topics, see In this Section and Reference for more information.

Describes the interfaces an application must implement to convert IDs and item data to and from the XML format that is used by a feed.

How to: Create an Unmanaged Feed Producer

Describes how to use an unmanaged language, such as C++, to create an application that uses Sync Framework to produce an RSS feed from a list of files in a folder.
