UltraLite supports the ability to transfer files with the MobiLink server. M-Business Anywhere does not need this functionality because it has its own mechanism for file deployments or transfers (called channel synchronization).
For all other APIs, use the MobiLink file transfer mechanism when:
You have multiple files that you need to deploy to multiple devices, particularly when corporate firewalls are used as a security measure. Because MobiLink is already configured to handle synchronization through these firewalls, the MLFileTransfer mechanism makes device provisioning for upgrades and other types of file transfers very convenient.
You have files that you want to target to a specific MobiLink user ID. This requires that you create one or more user-specific directories on the MobiLink server for each user ID you require. Otherwise, if you only have a single version of the file, you can use a default directory.
