Following is a list of new features for the MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central introduced in version 16.0.
Test tool for synchronization models The new Test tool on the synchronization model Deployment tab allows you to test the deployment of a synchronization model. See Testing a synchronization model before deployment.
For usage examples, see Tutorial: Introducing MobiLink.
Simplified Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard The Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard is simpler and easier to use. If a synchronization model has been previously deployed, the wizard now provides the option to deploy the synchronization model with the values used in the previous deployment.
Ability to drop synchronization models added using the MobiLink 16.0 plug-in Use the new Remove From Consolidated Database context menu item for synchronization models to drop a synchronization model and its associated schema. Only synchronization models added using the MobiLink 16.0 plug-in for Sybase Central can be dropped.
Support for multiple synchronization models in the consolidated database Deploying a synchronization model now preserves schema which is identical to the previously installed schema. During deployment you are warned before deploying if there are incompatibilities between versions. In addition, redeploying updates to the same script version automatically removes schema no longer needed by the new version.
Improved conflict handling for synchronization models All processing of conflict detection and resolution is now done inside the upload_update script and fetches are only needed when a conflict occurs, instead of on every row. This results in a significant performance improvement when there are large numbers of updates.
Create Synchronization Model Wizard has been simplified Previously the wizard had optional pages for setting various synchronization options. Those optional pages have been removed, since their synchronization options can also be set in the Mappings tab and in the Synchronization Model Properties window.
MobiLink system objects can be removed from a database A new popup menu item is available to remove MobiLink system setup from a consolidated database. Choosing this item removes all MobiLink system objects from the consolidated database, and removes the database from the MobiLink project.
Remote tasks can now be exported to a file Remote tasks can be exported to a file with a .mlt extension. See Exporting a remote task.
Limited support for the Oracle XMLTYPE data type The MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central provides limited support for the Oracle XMLTYPE. See Limitations of synchronization models.
Column mapping warnings When creating a synchronization model or adding a table mapping to a synchronization model, a warning is now given if any fixed-length character columns in the consolidated tables are mapped to variable-length character columns in the remote tables. This check is only done if the consolidated database is Oracle, IBM DB2 LUW, Microsoft SQL Server or Adaptive Server Enterprise.
