MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central

Following is a list of enhancements to the MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central introduced in SQL Anywhere version 12.0.1.

  • Synchronization model deployment now creates synchronization profiles   Now when deploying a synchronization model to a remote database, a synchronization profile is created automatically.

  • Synchronization model support for SAP Sybase IQ   Synchronization models can now be created with SAP Sybase IQ consolidated databases. See SAP Sybase IQ consolidated database.

  • Timestamp downloads using column defaults instead of triggers   Synchronization models using SQL Anywhere, SAP Sybase IQ, IBM DB2 LUW, and MySQL consolidated databases can now use timestamp-based downloads without having to use triggers to maintain TIMESTAMP columns. Instead of triggers, column default values can be used to automatically update the TIMESTAMP column in a row when the row is inserted or updated. To facilitate this, a new Use Column Default Instead Of A Trigger option has been added to the Timestamp Download Options page of the Create Synchronization Model Wizard and the Download Type tab of the table mapping editor.

  • Remote schema names can be imported from a consolidated database   When you add a consolidated database to a project, either with the Create Project Wizard or the Add Consolidated Database Wizard, the wizard automatically checks if there are any remote schema names defined in the consolidated database that are not already in the project. If there are, you are asked if you want to import them.

  • Groups can be created from a file   The Create Group Wizard allows you to select the Agents for a group by pointing to a text file that contains the names of the Agents. Members can also be adding by browsing the Agents defined in a consolidated database.

  • New help button for remote task commands   There is now a question mark icon to the right of the Command Type dropdown list that you can use to display help for the commands used to create remote tasks.

  • New Description field for Agents   The Agent Properties window and Create MobiLink Agent Wizard now have a Description field where you can enter a description of the Agent.

  • New CustDB sample project file added   A CustDB sample project file, %SQLANY12%\MobiLink\CustDB\project.mlp, is now available so that you can easily work with CustDB projects and view database scripts. For more information, see CustDB sample for MobiLink and Tutorial: Building the UltraLite CustDB sample application.
