SkyWire™ SkySync was introduced to fill a gap in the market. A tool that would permit the synchronization (and replication - see later) of disparate databases whether they be located on PDAs, be desktop variants or full blown client/server systems. To better understand the underpinnings of SkyWire™ SkySync, a little history lesson may be in order.
SkyWire™ SkySync is based on the Asta component set, a set of data-aware components for Delphi developers that uses tcp/ip as a transport protocol. The Asta creators were aware, at a very early stage, of the need to enable disconnected users and they introduced the Asta Suitcase Model.
