Developer InfoCenter (Replication)
Replication developers can take advantage of a number of application programming interfaces (APIs) to programmatically configure, maintain, and monitor a replication topology. This can simplify repeated replication tasks and improve the user experience for replication-based applications. By programming replication, end-users can be provided with customized replication functionality without having to be familiar with replication stored procedures and replication agent executables. For merge replication, the focus is typically on mobile client applications; for transactional replication, the focus is typically on the server.
To help the replication developer be as effective as possible, the following lists provide links for programming configuration, synchronization, and maintenance of replication.
