I want to use C sharp .net (vs2008) develop wince PDA to connect the PC database, I need to make a connection to a Sybase (SQL Anywhere) database in a Windows CE app over the network (wifi). PC server port : 2638 database server name: server Server: Sybase anywhere dvr12 database Client: wince software
But I found no reference documentation, if you please send copies to me.

According to the link SAP SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms and Engineering Support Status, Windows CE is supported in SA12. But, according to Windows embedded CE 6.0 and Odbc, Windows CE doesn't support ODBC libraries.
Thus the recommended approach is to use what SA provides - SQL Anywhere .NET Data Provider features. The link I have given you tells us what .NET provider should be used for the Compact Framework.
I hope this is everything you should know to start the development of ADO.NET applications. Please be careful, according to the first URL, Windows CE is not supported by SA17. So if you upgrade the DB server (everybody hopes), please be careful with the decision of the application architecture. Who knows, maybe HTTP-based approach will live longer than ADO.NET.
