About Asynchronous Query
Server Find, or Asynchronous Query is enabled, by default, in Siebel Service Handheld applications. Asynchronous Query utilizes Siebel Store-and-Forward Messaging to transmit data, and allows you to access data not available in the Siebel Handheld application's local database. If a user cannot find the desired information on a Siebel Handheld application's local data store, the user can send a query in the form of a request message to the target server. The server receives the request message, performs the query, and returns the query results in a data message to the requesting Siebel Handheld application. Later on, the data message arrives at the Siebel Handheld application and its information is inserted into a temporary table on the Siebel Handheld application. The user can then review the query results.
