Customizing dbmlsync synchronization

dbmlsync client event hooks

Event hooks allow you to use SQL stored procedures to manage the client-side synchronization process for dbmlsync. You can use client event hooks with the dbmlsync command line utility or the dbmlsync programming interfaces.

You can use event hooks to log and handle synchronization events. For example, you can schedule synchronizations based on logical events, retry connection failures, or handle specific errors and referential integrity violations.

For more information about client event hooks, see Event hooks for SQL Anywhere clients.

dbmlsync programming interfaces

You can use the following programming interfaces to integrate MobiLink clients into your applications and start synchronizations. These interfaces provide an alternative to the dbmlsync command line utility.

  • dbmlsync API   The Dbmlsync API provides a programming interface that allows MobiLink clients written in C++ or .Net to launch synchronizations and receive feedback about the progress of the synchronizations they request. This new programming interface enables you to access a lot more information about synchronization results and it also enables you to queue synchronizations, making them easier to manager.

    See Introduction to the Dbmlsync API.

  • DBTools interface for dbmlsync   You can use the DBTools interface for dbmlsync to integrate synchronization functionality into your SQL Anywhere synchronization client applications. All the SQL Anywhere database management utilities are built on DBTools.

    See DBTools interface for dbmlsync.

Scripted upload

You can also override the use of the client transaction log and define your own upload stream. See Scripted upload.
