Custom Palm conduits
Anyone out there have experience testing custom built conduits between the Palm device and some back end app?
-type of conduit
-potential common problems
Re: Custom Palm conduits
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a back end app so this reply may not apply.
We have developed custom palm conduits, along with the desktop and palm applications that are being synchronized. Here are some of the most common problems we've experienced:
- duplicated data
- conduit doesn't show up in HotSync Custom until machine is restarted and hotsync reloads
- data loss when changes are made to both the client application and palm application
- misc. crashes when syncing with the database open or in use by the application
- problems supporting sync with encrypted data
These are just some of the errors we have encountered in the past. Some may not be conduit related but I think most can be attributed to problems with syncing.
Hope that helps a little.
