Deltas between the mirror and source are only transferred after replication. JDBC subscriptions </li> <li> Slide 22 </li> <li> 2006 IBM Corporation22 A replication subscription provides specifications for how the information in a source system (an enterprise server) is to be synchronized with a target system (the mobile device). JDBC subscriptions provide users with access to data in source tables on a data source with a JDBC interface, including Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Informix, Sybase, and Lotus Domino. Upload subscriptions only allows the user to directly insert rows into a table on a source database. Related tables on the mobile devices are not refreshed during synchronization. File subscriptions allow replication of any type of file stored at the source server and are not bi-directional. . DB2 Everyplace Subscriptions for IDS </li> <li> Slide 23 </li> <li> 2006 IBM Corporation23 DB2 Everyplace uses several metadata tables to maintain information about its internal structure. The performance of relational databases will typically decline as tables grow unless they are periodically reorganized. Customer data should reside in backend servers on separate systems from the DB2 Everyplace system for maximum performance.
