MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central changes

Following is a list of behavior changes for the MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central introduced in version 12.0.0.

  • Changes to Mapping editors for Synchronization models  

    • The Table and Column Mapping editors for synchronization models now show consolidated databases on the left and remote databases on the right. See Table and column mappings.

    • Only the synchronized consolidated tables are listed in the table mapping editor. Changing the table mapping direction to Not Synchronized is the same as deleting the table mapping, removing that row from the editor when the model is saved, without changing database schema.

    • To add a table mapping for an unsynchronized consolidated table, and optionally add the table to the remote schema, use the New Table Mappings command. You can also use the Update Schema command to change the model's consolidated or remote schema.

    • Popup menus are now used instead of dropdown lists for choosing the right side of table and column mappings, with an optional window (accessed with the ellipsis button) if all the choices do not fit in the menu. For table mappings, only unsynchronized remote tables are listed. For column mappings, unsynchronized columns in the remote table are listed along with the options for value mappings and for not synchronizing the column.

    • If you change a synchronization option for a table mapping, the lower pane automatically switches to the tab for the corresponding sub-options.

  • VARBIT and LONG VARBIT columns   VARCHAR and LONG VARCHAR columns are used in place of VARBIT and LONG VARBIT columns, respectively, when deploying a synchronization model with a remote schema to a new UltraLite remote database.

  • GO now used as the statement delimiter   For SQL Anywhere and UltraLite databases, synchronization models now use GO for the statement delimiter instead of a semicolon, allowing the SQL generated with synchronization models to be used in central administration of remote tasks.
