Creating a MobiLink project

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 %SQLANYSAMP16%\MobiLink\CustDB\project.mlp.

  1. In Sybase Central, click Tools » MobiLink 16 » New Project.

  2. In the What do you want to name the new project field, type a name for the project.

  3. In the Where do you want to save the new project field, type the location of the project folder or click Browse to select the folder for your project file.

  4. Click Next.

  5. On the Specify a Consolidated Database page, perform the following tasks:

    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 to save the password used to connect to the database.

      Selecting this option causes the password to be saved in obfuscated form in the project file.

    4. Click Next.

  6. On the New Remote Database Schema page, select the consolidated tables and columns that you want to appear in the remote database. Click Next.

  7. Select Add a remote schema name to the project to identify a group of remote databases that have the same schema or you can add one later. Remote schema names are only useful if you are creating remote tasks.

    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.

    Click Next.

  8. On the Specify A Remote Database Type page, choose either SQL Anywhere or UltraLite for the type of remote database you want to use. You can change this setting later from the Properties page for the project.

  9. Click Finish to save the new project.

  10. If you are asked to install the MobiLink system setup, click Yes and then OK.


The MobiLink project is created, a connection to the specified database is established, and a synchronization model is created.


You can now edit or deploy the synchronization model or work with other objects in the MobiLink project, such as remote tasks.
