Lesson 6: Starting the MobiLink server

This lesson assumes you have completed all preceding lessons. See Lesson 1: Setting up an XML data source.

In this lesson, you start the MobiLink server. You start the MobiLink server (mlsrv12) using the -c option to connect to your consolidated database, and the -sl java option to load your Java class.

 Start the MobiLink server (mlsrv12)
  1. Connect to your consolidated database and load the class on the mlsrv12 command line.

    Replace c:\MLobjxml with the location of your source files.

    Run the following command:

    mlsrv12 -c "DSN=mlxml_db" -o serverOut.txt -v+ -dl -zu+ -x tcpip  -sl java (-cp c:\MLobjxml)

    The MobiLink server messages window appears.

    Below is a description of each MobiLink server option used in this tutorial. The options -o, -v, and -dl provide debugging and troubleshooting information. Using these logging options is appropriate in a development environment. For performance reasons, -v and -dl are typically not used in production.

    Option Description

    -c

    Precedes the connection string.

    -o

    Specifies the message log file serverOut.txt.

    -v+

    The -v option specifies what information is logged. Using -v+ sets maximum verbose logging.

    -dl

    Displays all log messages on screen.

    -zu+

    Adds new users automatically.

    -x

    Sets the communications protocol and parameters for MobiLink clients.

    -sl java

    Specifies a set of directories to search for class files, and forces the Java VM to load on server startup.

  2. Proceed to Lesson 7: Setting up your MobiLink client database.
