The MobiLink data synchronization technology included in the SQL Anywhere product includes a synchronization server, client software for SQL Anywhere and UltraLite databases, and a communication protocol between clients and servers. The synchronization server is also delivered as an option for the SAP HANA Platform. This offering is called SAP HANA remote data sync, and it adds numerous integration features to the synchronization server, including integrated monitoring, configuration, lifecycle management, license management, and more.
MobiLink client configuration and operation is the same, whether the synchronization server is obtained as part of the SQL Anywhere product or as the SAP HANA remote data sync option. MobiLink client documentation in this documentation set generally applies to clients working with either flavor of the synchronization server.
This book describes how to set up, configure, and synchronize MobiLink clients. MobiLink clients can be SQL Anywhere or UltraLite databases. This book also describes the Dbmlsync API, which allows you to integrate synchronization seamlessly into your C++ or .NET client applications.
