Dbmlsync API for C++

This section describes the methods in the C++ implementation of the DbmlsyncClient class.

The sample below shows a typical application using the C++ version of the Dbmlsync API to perform a synchronization to receive output events. The sample omits error handling for clarity. It is always good indent practice to check the return value from each API call.

Dbmlsync C++ sample
#include <stdio.h>
#include "dbmlsynccli.h"

int main( void ) {
    DbmlsyncClient *client;
    DBSC_SyncHdl    syncHdl;
    DBSC_Event     *ev1;

    client = DbmlsyncClient::InstantiateClient();
    if( client == NULL ) return( 1 );

    // Setting the "server path" is usually required on Windows Mobile/CE.
    // In other environments the server path is usually not required unless
    // you SA install is not in your path or you have multiple versions of the
    // product installed
    client->SetProperty( "server path", "C:\\SQLAnywhere\\bin32" );

    client->StartServer( 3426,
              "-c eng=remote;dbn=rem1;uid=dba;pwd=sql -v+ -ot c:\\dbsync1.txt",
              5000, NULL );
    client->Connect( NULL, 3426, "dba", "sql");
    syncHdl = client->Sync( "my_sync_profile", "" );
    while( client->GetEvent( &ev1, 5000) == DBSC_GETEVENT_OK ) {
        if( ev1->hdl == syncHdl ) {
            // Process events that interest you here

            if( ev1->type == DBSC_EVENTTYPE_SYNC_DONE ) {
                client->FreeEventInfo( ev1 );
            client->FreeEventInfo( ev1 );
     client->ShutdownServer( DBSC_SHUTDOWN_ON_EMPTY_QUEUE );
     client->WaitForServerShutdown( 10000 );
     delete client;

     return( 0 );
