SQL Anywhere 11.0.0 » MobiLink - Server-Initiated Synchronization » Introducing server-initiated synchronization


Quick start to server-initiated synchronization

The following steps provide an overview of the tasks required to set up server-initiated synchronization, assuming that you already have MobiLink synchronization set up.


This is the manual method. To set up server-initiated synchronization in Sybase Central, see Setting up server-initiated synchronization in Model mode.

Overview of setting up server-initiated synchronization

  1. Create a table to store push requests on the consolidated database.

    See Push requests.

  2. Set up the Notifier to create and manage push requests.

    See Notifiers.

  3. Set up the Listener to filter and act on Notifier push requests.

    See Listeners.

  4. You transmit via a gateway.

    • If you are using the default SYNC gateway, which uses the same protocol as you use for synchronization, you may not need to make any changes to the default gateway settings.
    • If you are using UDP, you may be able to send messages via the default settings.
    • If you are sending SMS notifications, you need to configure gateways and carriers and also specify SMS listening libraries.

    See Gateways and carriers and Listening libraries.
