DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for May 2016

When Do You Need an mEnable Server License?

DroidDB allows you read and write data on a desktop/server database. Sometimes you need an mEnable Server license, sometimes you don't. This month's tip of the month clarifies when an mEnable Server License is needed.

DroidDB comes with a synchronizer. The synchronizer inserts/updates/deletes data on the desktop/server database based on what you did on the handheld. The synchronizer also inserts/updates/deletes data on the handheld database based on what you did on the desktop/server.

If you are satisfied with requiring your end-users to go back to a desktop/laptop and conect the handheld to the desktop/laptop by a USB cable in order to synchronize, you do not need an mEnable Server License.

However, if you want to allow your end-users to synchronize over a WiFi connection, a TCP/IP connection, or an internet conection, you do need an mEnable Server License.

Also, if you want to allow your-end users to read/write the data on the desktop/server in real-time (as opposed to having a copy of the data on the handheld and periodically synchronizing), you will also need an mEnable Server License.

Top rated! I needed a solid database application development tool for mobile devices. I chose DroidDB for Android OS because it provided a way to get a strong product to market quickly. DroidDB is relational, gives me control over form layout, handles macros, and supports events. It works on all Android versions I have tried and is a great companion product to SYWARE’s VisualCE.
