A publication is a database object that identifies the data that is to be synchronized. If you want to synchronize all tables and all rows of those tables in your UltraLite database, do not create any publications.
A publication consists of a set of articles. Each article may be an entire table, or may be rows in a table. You can define this set of rows with a WHERE clause (except with HotSync on Palm OS).
Each database can have multiple publications, depending on the synchronization logic you require. For example, you may want to create a publication for high-priority data. The user can synchronize this data over high-speed wireless networks. Because wireless networks can have usage costs associated with them, you would want to limit these usage fees to those that are business-critical only. All other less time-sensitive data could be synchronized from a cradle at a later time.
You create publications using Sybase Central or with the CREATE PUBLICATION statement. In Sybase Central, all publications and articles appear in the Publications folder.
