This section of the Sync Framework documentation describes database synchronization providers (referred to as Sync Services for ADO.NET in previous releases). Sync Framework includes several database synchronization providers. An intuitive and flexible API lets you build applications that target offline and collaboration scenarios for database synchronization. This section provides an easy-to-follow introduction, and how-to and reference topics that will help you to quickly understand and be productive with the API. The how-to topics contain sample 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.
