Lesson 6: Starting the MobiLink server

In this lesson, you start the MobiLink server. You start the MobiLink server (mlsrv16) using the -c option to connect to your consolidated database, and the -sl java option to load your Java class.


This lesson assumes you have completed all preceding lessons. See Lesson 1: Setting up an XML data source.

This lesson assumes that you have the roles and privileges listed in the Privileges section at the start of this tutorial: Tutorial: Synchronizing with XML.

  • Connect to your consolidated database and load the class on the mlsrv16 command line.

    Replace c:\MLobjxml with the location of your source files and then run the following command:

    mlsrv16 -c "DSN=mlxml_db" -o serverOut.txt -v+ -dl -zu+ -x tcpip  -sl java (-cp c:\MLobjxml)

    The MobiLink server messages window appears.

    Below is a description of each MobiLink server option used in this tutorial. The options -o, -v, and -dl provide debugging and troubleshooting information. Using these logging options is appropriate in a development environment. For performance reasons, -v+ and -dl are typically not used in production.

    Option Description


    Precedes the connection string.


    Specifies the message log file serverOut.txt.


    The -v option specifies what information is logged. Using -v+ sets maximum verbose logging.


    Displays all log messages on screen.


    Adds new users automatically.


    Sets the communications protocol and parameters for MobiLink clients.

    -sl java

    Specifies a set of directories to search for class files, and forces the Java VM to load on server startup.


The MobiLink server is started.
