SQL Anywhere 11.0.1 » MobiLink - Getting Started » MobiLink Tutorials » Tutorial: Using MobiLink with an Oracle 10g consolidated database


Lesson 3: Connect with MobiLink

In this lesson, you create an ODBC data source that connects MobiLink to the consolidated database.

To connect MobiLink to the consolidated database
  1. Create an ODBC data source.

    You should use the iAnywhere driver for Oracle that comes with SQL Anywhere 11. Use the following configuration settings:

    ODBC tab fields Values
    Data source name oracle_cons
    User ID OE
    Password sql
    SID orcl
    Procedure returns results not selected.
    Array size 60000

    This tutorial assumes you performed a basic installation of Oracle Database 10g, which creates a starter database named orcl. The Order Entry (OE) schema is automatically installed on orcl. If you installed the OE schema on another database, use the name of the database as the SID value.

  2. To test the ODBC connection, click Test Connection.

After configuring your ODBC data source, you can use the MobiLink plug-in to connect to the Oracle database and create a synchronization model.
