ActiveSync is synchronization software for Microsoft Windows CE handheld devices. ActiveSync governs synchronization between a Windows CE device and a desktop computer. A MobiLink provider for ActiveSync governs synchronization to the MobiLink server.
Setting up ActiveSync synchronization for SQL Anywhere clients involves the following steps:
Configure the SQL Anywhere remote database for ActiveSync synchronization.
Install the MobiLink provider for ActiveSync.
Register the SQL Anywhere client for use with ActiveSync.
If you use ActiveSync synchronization, synchronization must be initiated from the ActiveSync software. The MobiLink provider for ActiveSync can start dbmlsync or it can wake a dbmlsync that is sleeping as scheduled by a schedule string.
You can also put dbmlsync into a sleep mode using a delay hook in the remote database, but the MobiLink provider for ActiveSync cannot invoke synchronization from this state.
For information about scheduling synchronization, see Scheduling synchronization.
