PocketDB Publisher's Description

C:Documents and Settingszwickamaya4New.html PocketDB

PocketDB is database application for both the PC (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7) and a mobile device running Windows operating systems like Windows CE, Pocket PC 2002/2003 SE, Mobile 5/6 (Phone edition) etc.

The key feature of PockedDB is to share small databases like contacts, corporate directories, article lists and many other generic tables between the PC and a mobile device. Files used on the PC are 100% compatible (no transformation necessary) to the version of the mobile device (Windows mobile version).

Key Features:
  • Minimum size databases.
  • Import from Outlook address lists and contacts.
  • Import from Microsoft Exchange corporate directories and address lists.
  • Import and export to and from CSV (comma-separated value) files.
  • Record fine synchronization between PC and mobile device.
  • Database encryption to support secret data sets like a personal password and account database.
  • Sorting and search.
  • Multi line fields.
  • Initiating phone calls by just double clicking on a phone number marked as one.
  • Recovery of overwritten or deleted entries.

PocketDB generates outstanding small databases. In order to accomplish this size constraint, the following limitations apply to PocketDB databases:

  • In general it is not a relational database that can be compared to the feature set of Microsoft Access.
  • It allows 255 fields per record.
  • A field name can have maximum 255 characters.
  • A field content can have maximum 255 bytes.
  • The database file size can be maximum 2 GByte.

However today's usually available storage capacity on mobile devices (not flash based) would limit the size to about 10 MByte.

The maximum number of records, that can be stored is roughly limited in theory up to 130 Million. In practice with a reasonable record size the base can hold up to 25 Million records. However, considering a reasonable short time in a search thread trough the database on a mobile device the number of records should not exceed 100 thousand. In order to reach reasonable respond times on search threads the file size should stay within 2 - 10 MByte (depending on today's available mobile device performance).

More practically spoken: PocketDB is able to reasonable handle name, department, room, phone number and e-mail information of a large sized companies for up to 100 thousand employees. PocketDB will not be able to reasonable handle all world wide flight schedules.

Note: It is not recommended to keep large databases for performance reasons on flash memory devices, like SD, miniSD, MMC, CompactFlash or similar.

The PC version of PocketDB is used to create, import, export and synchronize databases while the mobile version is just used to browse, search, enter and edit records. The PC version has all the features of the mobile version.
