I have a WP7 app called Standard Works that parses several large books from xml files. I would like to save the parsed book objects into my Sterling db so that the files don't have to be parsed each time the app runs.
The problem is, it takes waaaaaaaaaaay to long to save that much data to the db and it would be a really bad user experience.
What I would like to do is save it all to the db myself, use the backup function, then pull the backup file and ship it with the app so I could just use the restore function to populate the user's db. This would be lots faster!
How do I get my Sterling backup file out of the emulator? I don't want to have to write a service to upload the data if possible. Thanks for your help.
