This book explains the fascinating characteristics of data synchronization and device management and the solution that SyncML offers to achieve global and interoperable synchronization and device management with first-class out-of-the-box experience.
It comprehensively covers the SyncML specifications and the reference implementations. It describes the ideas and design principles behind the specifications and how they evolved to the current state. There are separate chapters dedicated to the integration of SyncML into mobile devices as well as synchronization servers.
This book has a strong emphasis on the challenges that universal synchronization faces as well as the solutions and opportunities that a global synchronization specification offers. One example of these new opportunities is the new generation of services, which deliver added value to a growing number of customers. There are many industries (such as e-business, private or home, finance, or travel) that will use synchronization as the base infrastructure to efficiently exchange data.
This book contains everything you need to know about SyncML and synchronization. The major goal of this book is to make it easy to understand SyncML, its benefits, and to implement it in solutions, on the client as well as on the server side.
