Pergunta: Dúvidas sobre Windows Phone 7 e compatibilidade de aplicações antigas

Recebi a seguinte mensagem de um visitante deste blog, que espelha muitas das preocupações de empresas que desenvolvem para Windows Mobile, que tomo a liberdade de transcrever:

Com o lançamento do Windows Phone 7, tanto quanto tenho lido em blogs, o SQL SERVER COMPACT EDITION vai desaparecer certo? O meu problema é o seguinte, a empresa para a qual trabalho desenvolve software que usa bd em sql server ce, e é desenvolvido em VS 2005. A minha duvida é se voce sabe se o projecto será compativel no Windows Phone 7 ou se há alguma maneira de migrar, ou tendo em conta que o WP7 assenta em silverlight, a unica hipotese é desenvolver a solução de raiz??

A minha outra duvida é será que a Microsoft apesar de lançar o WP7, irá manter a venda de Windows Mobile 6.5 ? de modo a continuar a dar suporte e assistência às milhares de aplicações que existirão em todo o mundo?

Não sei se me pode ajudar, mas como sou leitor assíduo do seu blog, junto lhe envio as minhas preocupações, que de momento me causam grandes dores de cabeça :) Na expectativa que me possa transmitir alguma informação adicional

Começando pelo fim, o Windows Mobile 6.5 não morre! A Microsoft anunciou há meses – publiquei um post dobre o assunto na altura – o Windows Embedded Handheld como a nova incarnação do que actualmente conhecemos como Windows Mobile. Esse ‘novo’ sistema operativo, que a Motorola já começou a adoptar e que outros fabricantes adoptarão, tem já um roadmap conhecido, que prevê uma evolução futura baseada em CE 7.0, mantendo sempre compatibilidade com a .NET Compact Framework 3.5, o SQL Server CE 3.5, continuando para já a exigir o VS2008 para desenvolvimento. É um facto que os fabricantes mais ‘comerciais’ como a HTC não venham a adoptar este sistema operativo, mas por ex., com os preços dos novos Motorola ES400 a descer dos 600€, não há razão para as empresas não adoptarem equipamentos com fiabilidade e robustez acrescida face aos equipamentos de consumo.

Continuando no tema do desenvolvimento, as aplicações actualmente feitas para .NET CF 3.5 não correm de todo nos equipamentos Windows Phone 7. A boa notícia é que projectos bem estruturados em termos de separação de lógica de negócio, acesso a dados e apresentação facilitam a migração e/ou partilha de código entre projectos para as duas plataformas (nota: julgo que as class library a partilhar terão de ser desenvolvidas no VS2008 para .NET CF 3.5).

Para terminar, o SQL Server Compact Edition não desaparece! Para além de ter sido anunciado o seu suporte alargado do lado do PC, incluíndo suporte para projectos ASP.net, que não é o que interessa para a questão, o SQL Server Compact Edition estará presente nos Windows Phone 7, simplesmente não está acessível aos programadores nesta primeira versão do Windows Phone 7 e respectivas ferramentas de desenvolvimento. Desconhece-se qual a forma como será exposto, admitindo que venha a sê-lo.

Espero ter respondido ao autor da mensagem, qualquer questão pf. usem os comentários.

PDC2010: Registo para assistir à keynote no auditório da Microsoft

No seguimento de um post anterior sobre o PDC2010 e as opções para assistir não-presencialmente, quem pretender assitir à keynote, a partir das 17:00 da próxima 5ª feira no auditório da Microsoft, deverá registar-se utilizando o seguinte link:

https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032465793&Culture=pt-PT

A seguir à keynote haverá espaço para discussão sobre as tecnologias que estarão em evidência no evento.

PDC2010 online, Windows Phone e tecnologias de sincronização

No próximo dia 28 de Outubro, às 17:00 portuguesas terá início a keynote de abertura do PDC2010. O evento deste ano tem um atractivo, realiza-se no Microsoft Campus em Redmond, que se revelou também ser um inconveniente, as inscrições esgotaram muito rapidamente. Costuma-se dizer que estes eventos são para quem pode, mas neste caso, mesmo entre quem já tinha alocado budget para o evento, muitos ficaram de fora.

Para esses e para todos os outros que pelas mais diversas razões não se poderiam deslocar a Redmond, as boas notícias são que o evento será transmitido para locais ao redor do mundo onde poderão com outras pessoas assistir a essas transmissões, como no auditório da Microsoft em Lisboa, mas, também poderão assistir live a partir dos V/ PC a partir do site do evento, e descarregar as sessões 24 horas depois de terem lugar!

Podem consultar a agenda e lista de sessões no site do evento, a partir de onde podem descarregar também lembretes para o Outlook.

Pessoalmente destaco as seguintes:

Understanding Message Box on Windows Phone 7
http://beautifulmind.blog.co.in/2010/07/28/understanding-message-box-on-windows-phone-7/

Condensado de novidades: Ferramentas de desenvolvimento para WP7 já RTW, suporte a VB, WebDay 2010 com WP7, livro sobre SL 4.0 e… novamente MVP!

O trabalho não me tem permitido manter o blog actualizado, tendo até deixado passar algumas novidades

- A versão final das ferramentas de desenvolvimento para Windows Phone 7 foi libertada, e para aqueles que não tenham uma edição paga do Visual Studio 2010, vem gratuitamente com uma edição Express e o Expression Blend.

- Foi anunciado o suporte  futuro oficial à utilização de Visual Basic.net para desenvolvimento de aplicações Silverlight para Windows Phone 7. Ter em conta que o XNA só suporta C# e que a pre-release (CTP) não é suportada pelo VS2010 Express

- Vai decorrer o evento Microsoft WebDay 2010 no Porto e em Lisboa, a 12 e 14 de Outubro respectivamente, que entre diversos temas ligados ao desenvolvimento para a web & cloud, inclui também uma sessão sobre o Windows Phone 7 enquanto plataforma aplicacional. Na véspera de cada um dos eventos haverá uma pré-conferência dedicada ao desenvolvimento para Windows Phone 7, usando quer Silverlight, quer XNA.

- Pela primeira vez o meu nome é referido num prefácio num livro Smile Claro que essa é a última razão porque comprariam um livro, mas há muitas e boas razões para fazê-lo! O livro é o ‘Silverlight 4.0 – Curso Completo’ pelo Luís Abreu, MVP de ASP.NET, que versa diversos temas ligados ao desenvolvimento para Silverlight, quer no modelo de execução no browser, quer fora do browser, podendo ser lido por aqueles que conhecendo .NET não se iniciaram ainda no desenvolvimento para SL, bem como por aqueles que tendo vir a acompanhar o SL querem saber mais sobre a versão 4.0. Infelizmente este livro não cobre o desenvolvimento para Windows Phone 7, mas ainda assim é uma excelente opção para quem ao desenvolver com SL para Windows Phone 7 pretende aproveitar os conhecimentos adquiridos de SL para desenvolver para web e desktops. Importante para muitos é o facto de este livro estar escrito em Português.

- Last but not least, fui nomeado de novo MVP pela Microsoft! Continuo com a competência ‘Device Application Development’ pelas minhas contribuições ligadas ao desenvolvimento de aplicações em .NET Compact Framework para Windows Mobile e ao SQL Server Compact
