Creating a remote database

Any SQL Anywhere database can be used as a remote database in a MobiLink system. All you need to do is create a publication, create a MobiLink user, register the user with the consolidated database, and subscribe the MobiLink user to the publication.

If you use the Create Synchronization Model Wizard to create your MobiLink client application, these objects are created for you when you deploy the model. Even then, you should understand the concepts.

To use a SQL Anywhere database as a remote database
  1. Start with an existing SQL Anywhere database, or create a new one and add your tables.

  2. Create one or more publications in the remote database.

    See Publishing data.

  3. Create MobiLink users in the remote database.

    See Creating MobiLink users.

  4. Register users with the consolidated database.

    See Adding MobiLink user names to the consolidated database.

  5. Subscribe MobiLink users to one or more of the publications.

    See Creating synchronization subscriptions.
