I have a wp7 app that parses some large xml files into objects(books) every time the app loads. So I decided to use sterling to write these books to a database so I wouldn't need to load them each time.
The problem is, it can take upwards of 10 minutes to parse these books and then write them to the database, which is not a very good user experience.
Would it be possible to just generate these db files in my emulator, and then grab these files and ship them with my app so the db is pre populated?
I know I could use backup/restore to do this, but copying the generated db files seems much easier. Thanks for your help.
