These documents provide an overview of data synchronization between a Microsoft SQL Server database and a remote SQL Anywhere client database.
Typically, synchronization begins when a remote client opens a connection to a MobiLink server. During synchronization, the MobiLink client uploads changes made to the remote database since the last synchronization. After receiving the data, the MobiLink server updates the consolidated database, and then downloads the changes from the consolidated database to the remote database.
MobiLink is a component of SQL Anywhere and it provides scalable, high-performance data synchronization technology. It functions on several operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Windows Mobile, and Palm OS. MobiLink supports several development technologies including .NET and Java and it works with wired or unwired connections. To design and develop your database you can use the Sybase Central graphical interface, or you can manipulate the SQL code directly.
