How synchronization failure is handled

MobiLink synchronization is fault tolerant. For example, if a communication link fails during synchronization, both the remote database and the consolidated database are left in a consistent state.

On the client, failure is indicated by a return code.

Synchronization failure is handled differently depending on when it happens. The following cases are handled in different ways:

In all cases where failure may occur, no data is lost. The MobiLink server and the MobiLink client manage this for you. The developer or user do not need to worry about maintaining consistent data in their application.
