2 Getting Started

The information in this chapter enables you, the Administrator, to started publishing your applications into the Mobile Server Repository. Before initiating the data synchronization process, you must first publish your mobile applications.

2.1 The Overall Flow

The general flow for publishing an application, whether a web based application or a native one, is as follows.

  1. Ensure that the Mobile Server is running. Package the application using the Packaging Wizard. For a step-by-step description of how to use the Packaging Wizard, consult the Oracle Database Lite Developer’s Guide.

  2. If the application tables do not already exist in the Oracle database, you must create the requisite tables. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Administering Mobile Applications", Section 4.6.1, "Creating Database Tables".

  3. Logon to the Mobile Manager and publish the application. For more information, Chapter 4, "Administering Mobile Applications", Section 4.6, "Uploading Applications to the Mobile Server Repository".

  4. Go to the Application Properties page. Set the database password for the application tables. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Administering Mobile Applications", Section 4.3, "Modifying Application Properties".

  5. Go to the Users page and assign this application to users. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Administering Mobile Applications".

  6. Navigate to the Data Subsetting page and set the data subsetting parameters, (if applicable) for each user on each platform. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Administering Mobile Applications", Section 4.8, "Modifying Data Subsetting Parameters".

  7. Start the Message Generator and Processor (MGP). For more information, see Chapter 8, "Managing Synchronization", Section 8.7, "Scheduling MGP Cycles to Run Inside the Mobile Server".
