Data Paths in Synchronization

In designing a SyncML Server, it is important to understand the paths of dataflow from Clients to the actual back-end datastores. In some cases, all updates to data pass through the synchronization Server. Thus, from the perspective of the Server, the data has a single path from Clients to datastores, running through the Server itself. This is called single-path synchronization. In some other cases, there may be updates to data that do not pass through the synchronization Server. This is called multiple-path synchronization. These two kinds of synchronization occur commonly in real usage scenarios. The synchronization data paths have profound effects on the design of a SyncML Server, especially on the Data Management ...
