The CustDB sample is installed with SQL Anywhere. It is a multi-tiered database management solution that implements MobiLink synchronization with a SQL Anywhere consolidated database.
CustDB consists of the following:
A consolidated SQL Anywhere database. The database is pre-populated with sales status data.
A remote UltraLite database. This database is initially empty.
An UltraLite client application.
MobiLink server synchronization scripts.
Different versions of the application code exist for each supported programming interface and platform. However, the tutorial references the compiled version of the application for Windows desktops only. Remember that each version varies to conform to the conventions of each platform.
You can only run one instance of CustDB at a time. Trying to run more than one instance brings the first instance to the foreground.
CustDB allows sales personnel to track and monitor transactions and then pool information from two types of users:
Sales personnel that authenticate with user IDs 51, 52, and 53.
Mobile managers that authenticate with user ID 50.
Information gathered by these different users can be synchronized with the consolidated database.
After following each lesson you will know how to:
Run the MobiLink server to carry out data synchronization between the consolidated database and the UltraLite remote.
Use Sybase Central to browse the data in the UltraLite remote.
Manage UltraLite databases with UltraLite command line utilities.
