Using a SQL Anywhere database as a remote database

Any SQL Anywhere database can be used as a remote database in a MobiLink system. You need to create a publication, create a MobiLink user, create a synchronization subscription, and register the user with the consolidated database.


There are no prerequisites for performing this task.

Contexte et remarques

If you use the Create Synchronization Model Wizard to create your MobiLink client application, these objects are created for you when you deploy the model.


A database that does not have a transaction log can only be used as a remote database for scripted upload and for download-only publications.

  1. Start with an existing SQL Anywhere database, or create a new one and add your tables.

  2. Create one or more publications in the remote database.

    See Publications.

  3. Create MobiLink users in the remote database.

    See MobiLink users.

  4. Register users with the consolidated database.

    See Adding MobiLink user names to the consolidated database.

  5. Create synchronization subscriptions in the remote database.

    See Synchronization subscription creation.


The SQL Anywhere database is set up as a remote database.
