The Mobile Network Computing Reference Specification, or MNCRS , defines a
Java-based platform for communicating mobile devices. The specification, developed by an
18-company consortium, includes a framework for data synchronization. This paper describes
version 1.1 of the framework, published in March 1999 and posted at http://www.mncrs.org.
The heart of the framework is a persistent synchronizable store, or sync store, containing
Java objects. There may be replicas of a sync store on several usually disconnected devices.
Replicas are peers. Synchronization brings two replicas into identical states. Synchronization may
be initiated by an application, perhaps upon some action by the end user, or by a system utility
that awakens at specified times or upon specified events, such as reestablishment of a network
