From my understanding SQL SSL encryption (required by an Azure SQL Database) is not supported in mono; and I cannot get OleDb references to work in my simple android project to test if it would allow a connection to an Azure SQL Database. Does Xamarin not provide a means of directly connecting to Azure SQL Database or any other database that requires SSL encryption? I am trying to avoid having to write a separate Azure Web App (mobile back end) for what amounts to small internal application.
Personally feel like this is a major oversight especially with the apparent broken state of System.Data.OleDb and lack of SSL encryption in System.Data.SqlClient. Any workaround or other insight would be greatly appreciated.
