Overview of Asynchronous Query on the Handheld Device
Asynchronous Query allows a Siebel Handheld application user to access data not available in the Siebel Handheld application's local database. If a user cannot find desired information on a Handheld application's local data store, the user can send a query in a format 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.
Asynchronous Query is set up for the Service Handheld application and can be configured to support other Siebel Handheld applications. To set up Asynchronous Query for a Siebel Handheld Application, see Process of Configuring Asynchronous Query for Siebel Handheld Applications.
