Jet Replication White Papers

This directs you to HTML versions of the white papers:
Jet 4 Replication White Paper
Jet 4 Internet Replication White Papter
PDF Versions:
http://dfenton.com/DFA/Replication/Files/WhitePaper4_0_Replication.pdf (152KB, dated Jan. 1999, printed to PDF Sept. 2006)
http://dfenton.com/DFA/Replication/Files/WhitePaper4_0_InternetReplication.pdf (678KB, dated Oct. 2005, printed to PDF Sept. 2006)
PDF Version: http://dfenton.com/DFA/Replication/Files/WhitePaper3_x_Replication.pdf (238KB, dated Aug. 1997, printed to PDF Sept. 2006)
It's probably helpful to read both if you are using Jet 3.x, as the Jet 4 version includes a lot of information based on the experience gained using Jet 3.x that was not available when the 3.x version article was written. However, keep in mind that any information about Jet 4 conflicts and replication errors will not apply to 3.x. If you're using Jet 3.x, it's probably a good idea to read Michael Kaplan's review of the differences between Jet 4 and Jet 3.x Replication at the link below ([[1]]).

PDF version: http://dfenton.com/DFA/Replication/Files/FAQ4_0_JetReplication.pdf (320KB, dated Feb. 2006, printed to PDF Sept. 2006)
PDF version: http://dfenton.com/DFA/Replication/Files/FAQ3_x_JetReplication.pdf (235KB, dated Mar. 1998, printed to PDF Sept. 2006)
Note these two things:
1. It's probably helpful to read both if you are using Jet 3.x, as the Jet 4 version includes a lot of information based on the experience gained using Jet 3.x that was not available when the 3.x version article was written. However, keep in mind that any information about Jet 4 conflicts and replication errors will not apply to 3.x. If you're using Jet 3.x, it's probably a good idea to read Michael Kaplan's review of the differences between Jet 4 and Jet 3.x Replication at the link below (http://www.mvps.org/access/general/gen0033.htm).
2. If you're using Firefox, you may need to view these articles in IE, as in Firefox 1.5, the bottom of the article is hidden behind the footer of the page.
