The .NET Compact Framework lets developers easily and efficiently build robust applications that call XML Web services, thereby letting end users effectively access remote data, cache it locally for use when offline, and interact with it via rich user interfaces. This paper highlights the .NET Compact Framework's design goals, sheds light on what the first version contains, and speculates on future directions.
