Main MobiLink new features


Enhancements to the MobiLink plug-in in Sybase Central

It is now much easier to set up MobiLink applications by using a wizard to create a synchronization model file. This file contains information you enter about remote and consolidated tables and how to synchronize them. When the model is ready, you can use another wizard to deploy it, which will generate scripts and tables required for the application.

Synchronize to any data source

A new feature called direct row handling allows you to synchronize to virtually any data source. For example, you can synchronize to application servers, web servers, web services, text files, Excel spreadsheets, J2ME devices, or an RDBMS that cannot be used as a consolidated database using SQL-based row handling (such as MySQL). You must still have a consolidated database to hold MobiLink system tables and data that you want MobiLink to manage. The new data source or sources can be fully integrated into your synchronization process.

The MobiLink server API has been extended to support direct row handling, and two new events have been added. See:

In addition, a new feature called mobile web services provides support for mobile-optimized asynchronous web services that you can integrate with remote applications.

See Mobile Web Services.

Easier deployment

There is now a Deployment wizard that you can use to deploy the MobiLink server, SQL Anywhere clients, the MobiLink Monitor, and encryption components. The InstallShield merge modules and templates that were provided with previous versions are no longer provided. See:
