Regarding Timed Controlled Sync in smart synchronization

Hi,

The MI documentation says that Timed controlled sync is not supported with File I/O in smart synchronization.

Is there any difference between Timed COntrolled sync and timed two way synchronization which is performed using timed two way sync bos (T01)

If they are same, does it mean that any application using timed two way sync bos, should have a mobile database.

Regards

Raja Sekhar

    Hi Rahul,

    I have installed NWDS SP14 and right now using the help provided by it.

    In NWDS->Help->HelpContents, in the Mobile Development Kit section, please refer to the chapter

    Developing Applications->Synchronization->Smart Synchronization.

    There is a paragraph indicating restrictions in working with smart sync API. This paragraph mentions about timed controlled sync.

    Regards

    • Hi Raja ,

      just refer this link also ..

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/43/5d298f28616e47e10000000a422035/content.htm

      using this help , we can change the parameters in the MobileEngine.config file , so that it support time controlled synchronization.

      Time Controlled Synchronization

      -


      Synchronization start automatically at a defined time interval as a background job.

      i think file system is not so secure and not so easy to retrieve the data . there are chances for errors diring synchronization .If one error happens , that can damage the file system data base .

      so in general , replace the file system with database (DB2E or MaxDB ) is the best option.

      In the case of databases like DB2E , we can even administrate the database using proper GUI administrators ..

    hello raja,

    timed two-way is a syncbo type while the timed controlled

    sync is not a syncbo type; rather it is just a background

    sync invocation in the client.

    timed two-way syncbo data are processed in a timely manner

    by a scheduled background job processor which differs a

    little bit from the two-way type.

    timed controlled sync is also called the background sync that

    is controlled and invoked in the client side.

    these functionalities are not the same.

    regards

    jo
