Creating a MobiLink project

You must create a MobiLink project before working with MobiLink in Sybase Central.


There are no prerequisites for performing this task.

Context and remarks

A sample MobiLink project is provided in %sqlanysamp12%\MobiLink\CustDB\project.mlp.

 Create a MobiLink project
  1. In the Folders view of Sybase Central, right-click MobiLink 12 » New » Project.

  2. In the Name field, type a name for the project.

  3. In the Location field, type the location of the project folder or click Browse to select the folder for your project file.

  4. Click Finish to save your project with just the name and location, or click Next to specify additional information in the following steps.

  5. If you clicked Next, click Add A Consolidated Database To The Project if you know which consolidated database you want to associate with the project.

    1. In the Database Display Name field, type the display name you want to use for the consolidated database. This is the name that is listed in the consolidated database list in your project.

    2. In the Connection String field, type the database connection parameters to use to connect to the consolidated database or click Edit to go open a window to connect to an ODBC data source.

    3. Select Remember The Password if you want to save the password you used to connect to the database.

    4. Click Next.

  6. Decide whether you want to add a synchronization model or create one later. Choose one of the following options:

    • Do Not Add A Model   Choose this option if you do not want to add or create a synchronization model now or you can add one later.

    • Create A New Model   Choose this option to create a new synchronization model. The Create Synchronization Model Wizard is launched when you finish creating the project. See Synchronization models.

    • Import The Model From The Following File   Choose this option to import an existing synchronization model. In the empty field, type the path and file name of the synchronization model to import, or click Browse to select the synchronization model file. This creates a copy of the synchronization model file in your project folder.

  7. Select Add A Remote Schema Name To The Project if you want to identify a group of remote databases that have the same schema or you can add one later. If you are adding a remote schema name, specify the following:

    • What Do You Want To Name The New Remote Schema Name?   Type the name you want to use to identify the group of remote databases that share the same schema. It might be a good idea to include a version number.

    • Which Type Of Database Does The Remote Schema Name Apply To?   Select the type of database that the remote schema name applies to. This can be either SQL Anywhere or UltraLite.

  8. Click Finish to save the new project.


The MobiLink project is created.
