This tutorial series shows how to build a mobile database application using the J2ME Record Management System and later synchronize it with a remote Cloudscape database. This is where you will also learn how to craft a MIDlet that performs the necessary logic for creating and accessing the database application and deploying it to a J2ME environment.
In this second tutorial, you’ll synchronize the order information stored in the J2ME Record Management System with a remote, open source CloudscapeTM database. You’ll build your own two-way synchronization logic. The mobile application will supply all the information necessary for a remote sever-based application to act upon, ship the ordered product, and update the product information in a remote Cloudscape database. The mobile user can track the status of the order by synchronizing with this database.
