MobiLink plug-in for SQL Central

The MobiLink plug-in for SQL Central was redesigned in version 12. In previous versions, the plug-in had two modes: Model mode and Admin mode. The MobiLink functionality was split between these two modes, so you needed to be aware of which mode you were in at any given time.

In version 12 and later, these modes no longer exist.

The top level functions available through the Folders pane of the MobiLink plug-in are:

  • Working with MobiLink projects.

  • Working with consolidated databases.

  • Working with MobiLink server command lines.

  • Working with remote schema names.

  • Working with groups.

  • Working with remote tasks.

  • Working with synchronization models.

Remote schema name, group and remote tasks are all part of the central administration of remote databases feature.

To start working with MobiLink in SQL Central, you must first define a MobiLink project.

A MobiLink project is a framework that organizes the synchronization models, consolidated databases, and remote tasks that are related to a mobile application.

A MobiLink project is a named collection of the following:

  • A list of synchronization models

  • A list of designed but undeployed remote tasks

  • A list of connections to consolidated databases

  • A list of user-defined groups of MobiLink users
