A synchronization model is a tool that makes it easy for you to create MobiLink applications. A synchronization model is a file that is created by either the Create Project Wizard or the Create Synchronization Model Wizard in SQL Central.
After a synchronization model has been created, you can continue to customize the model. No changes are made to your consolidated database or remote database until you deploy the model. Your model is stored in a model file with the extension .mlsm, and a reference to that file is stored in your MobiLink project file.
When your model is complete, you use the Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard to deploy it. The Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard creates script files to run the MobiLink server and client using the deployment options you chose. You can choose to make changes to your existing databases when you deploy or you can choose to have the wizard create SQL script files that you run later. Files that are created for the remote database can be used in remote tasks.
After you deploy, you can continue to customize the synchronization model or databases and then redeploy. If necessary, you can modify the deployed synchronization system out of SQL Central, using the techniques that are described throughout the MobiLink documentation.
