Dear Friends,

I am facing a problem while making a software for client where sometimes the internet connection gets lost.

As the SQL server DB is centralized, and at some remote areas if the software doesn't have the internet (for some times due to fluctuation) then how can i be able to do/perform the entries or transactions from the software..

The software I am making is desktop based.

Kindly give any sugestions.

Thanks & Regards

It depend on how the remote areas depend on on each-other. If the action on one site is affecting any other site in a manner that can not be handled during connection outage, than you probably won't be able to meet their requirements. And this on it's hand depend on how long an outage takes.
Since if there occur outages of maximum several minutes, and that can be tolerated by the process, than it looks solvable. So, please give us more details.

Thanks zoltan for your time..actually i was thinking also the same that there is no way to tackle this problem of working in disconnected environment as this is not feasible in this case as the outing may last up to several minutes.

This is not an easy question to answer, and the solution is far too complex to deal with in a little textbox like this one.
However, it is a problem that we do see a lot - it's the same problem that sales guys used to have before mobile internet - and there is a solution. It's called SQL Replication and I'm afraid it is not as simple as "write this" - you have a fair amount of reading to do.
