Synchronization with Microsoft ActiveSync

Microsoft ActiveSync is synchronization software for Microsoft Windows Mobile handheld devices. Microsoft ActiveSync governs synchronization between a Windows Mobile device and a desktop computer. A MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync governs synchronization to the MobiLink server.

Setting up Microsoft ActiveSync synchronization for SQL Anywhere clients involves the following steps:

If you use Microsoft ActiveSync synchronization, synchronization must be initiated from the Microsoft ActiveSync software. The MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync can start dbmlsync or it can wake a dbmlsync that is sleeping as scheduled by a schedule string.

You can also put dbmlsync into a sleep mode using a delay hook in the remote database, but the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync cannot invoke synchronization from this state.

For information about scheduling synchronization, see Synchronization schedules.
