Remoting Provider

Important note Important

This feature will be removed in a future version of Windows. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Applications should instead use WCF Data Service.

The OLE DB Remoting Provider is an OLE DB service provider that allows client applications to retrieve and update rowsets from a remote server as if they were on the local computer. When integrated into a scenario that employs your data provider and other service components, it allows access to remote data while giving your application the same functionality as if the data were local.
