While you can synchronize data from a Windows CE over an ethernet or wi-fi connection, this section describes how to configure your desktop and device to use ActiveSync synchronization. If you want to synchronize directly using one of the other alternative methods, you need to program your application to do so using an appropriate synchronize function.
To use ActiveSync initiated synchronization requires that you:
Register all applications that need to use ActiveSync initiated synchronization with ActiveSync.
Have the ActiveSync provider installed on your desktop as well as deployed to your device.
To determine which platforms the provider is supported on, see the Synchronization section of the UltraLite table in SQL Anywhere 10.0.1 Components by Platform.
The following diagram shows the computing layers required by the ActiveSync architecture.
Notice that you must install the ActiveSync Manager on your device in addition to your desktop. You can only have a single ActiveSync provider on a single computer. However, if you have more than one UltraLite application installed on a Windows CE device, you can register them with the same provider so they are synchronized simultaneously.
