What is it?

The Offline Application Block is a reusable library that provides an architectural model for developers who want to add offline capabilities to their smart client applications. The block demonstrates how to:
  • Detect the presence or absence of network connectivity.
  • Cache the required data so that the application can continue to function even when the network connection is not available.
  • Synchronize the client application state and/or data with the server when the network connection becomes available.
