Because the UltraLite runtime includes a built-in bi-directional synchronization framework that links field and mobile workers with enterprise back-end systems, synchronizing UltraLite data is less involved than other remote clients. This built-in framework means that all data in an UltraLite database is synchronized automatically by default. Users new to MobiLink synchronization may use this default behavior, until business requirements necessitate a custom synchronization design to alter what UltraLite data gets synchronized to the consolidated database.
For more information about UltraLite, see Introducing UltraLite. For information about how to use SQL Anywhere databases as MobiLink clients, see SQL Anywhere Clients.
The best way to backup an UltraLite application is to synchronize with a consolidated database. To restore an UltraLite database, take an empty database and populate it from the consolidated database through synchronization.
If you have multiple files you need to deploy, or if you need to target versions of the file to specific user IDs, consider using the MobiLink server to transfer files. See Using MobiLink file transfers.
