MobiLink server

  • New Relay Server   The relay server is a set of web extensions that enable secure, load-balanced communication between mobile devices and MobiLink, Afaria and Onebridge servers communicating through a web server.

    See Introduction to the relay server.

  • MobiLink Server Farm   MobiLink servers may now be explicitly grouped into server farms of identical servers.

    Redundant, concurrent synchronizations from the same remote ID are now automatically detected across the entire farm. This removes the need for a load balancer to keep sending the same remote ID to the same MobiLink server.

    You can now configure each MobiLink server identically.

    Failover is automatically supported for the Notifier and the QAnywhere connector. The farm automatically appoints a MobiLink server to run these, and will elect a new server to run them if the first appointee machine fails.

  • 64-bit Platforms   MobiLink server is now fully 64-bit on several 64-bit platforms. For a list of the supported platforms 64-bit platforms, see [external link] SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms and Engineering Support Status.

  • New member for Java DownloadTableData interface   getLastDownloadTime method to return last download time for a table. See getLastDownloadTime method.

  • SQL passthrough   The SQL Passthrough feature allows you to download scripts of SQL statements from a consolidated database to a SQL Anywhere or UltraLite client, and have those SQL statements executed on the client at an appropriate time. See Introduction to SQL passthrough.

New mlsrv11 features
  • -cs option   MobiLink server system objects such as system tables, procedures, triggers, and views can now be stored in a database other than the consolidated database. The database that stores the MobiLink system objects is called the MobiLink System Database or MLSD.

    Use -cs to specify connection parameters for your MLSD. See -cs option.

  • -lsc option   Specifies the local server connect information. This information is passed to other servers in the server farm. See -lsc option.

  • -ss option   Enables the MobiLink server to run in a server farm. See -ss option.

    Separately licensed component required

    The -ss option is a feature of the MobiLink high availability option, which requires a separate license. See Separately licensed components.

  • -tc option   Set the count down timer for SQL script execution. See -tc option.

  • -tf option   Fail the SQL script execution when the count down timer specified with -tc expires (not for Oracle). See -tf option.
