Local Data Access: I: IndexedDB
WinRT does not have any built-in database capabilities like SQL Server CE. It doesn't provide any APIs to connect directly to a SQL Server; instead we need to use a cloud storage solution or rely on third-party options like SQLite. Cloud storage is not an ideal solution in many cases, as it requires complex data management. Also it might not be an affordable solution, as storing data in the cloud is not free in most cases. In the next three chapters we learn about local storage options like indexedDB, JET API, Application Storage, and SQLite. To start with, in this chapter we learn to use IndexedDB for storing structured data locally and build a Movie collection and Inventory app that use IndexedDB as data storage.
