Testing a synchronization model before deployment

Use the Test window to test a synchronization model before you deploy it.


You must have a synchronization model defined in your MobiLink project.

Context and remarks

Changes are made to the consolidated database when you use the test feature.

  1. Double-click the MobiLink project name

  2. Double-click Synchronization Models and double-click your synchronization model name.

  3. In the Deployment pane, click Test. You are warned that testing the synchronization model causes changes to the consolidated database and modifies data in tables. Click OK.

  4. Click Synchronize.


The synchronization model is tested and you can see whether or not the synchronization was successful.


You can do the following tasks when your test completes:

  • Review the information about the Data tab to compare the data in the consolidated and remote databases.

  • Review the information about the Client Log tab for information about failures during the test. This is only available for SQL Anywhere clients.

  • Review the information about the MobiLink Log tab for information about failures during the test.

  • Modify the remote and/or consolidated database before synchronizing again. There are several options for modifying the databases:

    • Use the Data tab to directly modify data in the tables being synchronized.
    • Use the Actions menu to open the dbisql utility on either database.
