Introduction to MobiLink custom authentication

MobiLink synchronization scripts can be written in SQL, Java, or .NET. You can use Java or .NET to add custom actions at any point of a synchronization.

In this tutorial, you add a Java or .NET method for the authenticate_user connection event. The authenticate_user event allows you to specify a custom authentication scheme and override the MobiLink built-in client authentication.
