Siebel Mobile Connector Guide > Working with the Siebel Mobile Connector >
In some instances, a third-party application may require a local copy of a subset of Siebel data for its own use. Such applications can periodically check if there is any new data, and retrieve just the data that has changed. The GetSMCUpdate method is used to obtain such updates. This method extracts the system level record information that is otherwise not available through the user interface.
NOTE: Generally, when using the Siebel Mobile Connector you can set the SWESetMarkup parameter to HTML, WML, or XML. However, you may not use the GetSMCUpdate method or receive alerts in any other markup than XML.
