Migration from XP to pocketPC 2003

P: n/a
GAD
Following our conversation here are my questions:

I would like to migrate an application that runs on
windows XP to PDA.
I would like to use pocket PC 2003 in order to get support
for VOIP
My questions are:
1. Does pocket PC 2003 implements WINRTP ? Can I use a
proprietry signalling protocol on top of it?
2. This project also involves the using of Microsoft
outlook tools We are writing forms and their code in VB
script . We are also interfacing with External DLLs
(Microsoft dlls
and proprietary DLLs) from the outlook. We are handling
incoming message with VBA code and macros.
Could you please let me know if we can use our
VBAproject.OTM file for the VBA . Will the VB scripts work
on pOCKET PC 2003? Or should we re-write our
code. Are there any restrictions in developing on top of
POCKET pc 2003
outlook comparing to developing on windows XP outlook.
3. Is there a support for ADO ?

Hi Mitch,

1.
WinRTP is a COM component which can originate RTP (Realtime Transport
Protocol) media from a microphone and terminate RTP media on a speaker.
This is software from Vovida. I looked over their Web site, but did not see
a version specific to Pocket PC.
http://www.vovida.org/

Windows Mobile 2003 does not include VOIP functions. VOIP is a part of
Windows CE 4.2, but not for the Pocket PC platform. However, there is at
least one software vendor that has announced VOIP software for Pocket PC,
so a search of the Web should give you more information on this.

2.
On the desktop, Outlook uses the Outlook Object Model. On the mobile
device, the Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) is used. They are
considerably different. Being a mobile device, features of POOM are of a
subset compared to the desktop Outlook, so yes there are limitations or
restrictions about what can be done.

VBA and VBScript are not available on the Pocket PC, but VB .NET can be
used specifically for Pocket PC 2003. eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0 can be used
to target Pocket PC 2002 devices, and the resulting programs may work fine
on Pocket PC 2003 as well (see
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/dnppcgen/ht
ml/devmobfaq.asp).

3.
ADO development is not suported for Pocket PC 2003. Pocket PC 2003 devices
do not include the eMbedded Visual Basic or ADOCE runtimes in ROM, but can
be downloaded for backwards compatibility with legacy applications (see
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/dnppc2k3/ht
ml/winmob03.asp).

ADO .NET is the supported technology for Windows Mobile 2003 and is used to
communicate with SQL Server CE edition. The .NET Compact Framework does not
include managed types for accessing the local data store sometimes called
CEDB or Pocket Access, which has been quite commonly used among eMbedded
Visual Basic developers.
