Your consolidated database holds system objects that are required by MobiLink. In most cases it also holds your application data, but you can hold all or part of your application data in other forms as well.
Your consolidated database can be one of the following ODBC-compliant RDBMSs:
For version support information, see the MobiLink table in SQL Anywhere 10.0.1 Components by Platform.
Your SQL Anywhere installation includes a setup script for each type of RDBMS. You need to run the appropriate setup script to use that RDBMS with MobiLink. The setup script adds tables and stored procedures that are required by MobiLink.
For information about setting up each type of database as a consolidated database, see Setting up a consolidated database.
For information about writing synchronization scripts for particular consolidated databases, see RDBMS-dependent synchronization scripts.
Your MobiLink environment must have a database that has been set up as a consolidated database. However, you can synchronize data sources other than the consolidated database. You can create a hybrid application in which you synchronize to both a consolidated database and some other data source, or you can synchronize to just a consolidated database or just another data source.
