My requirement is I have server J2EE web application and client J2EE web application. Sometimes client can go offline. When client comes online he should be able to synchronize changes to and fro. Also I should be able to control which rows/tables need to be synchronized based on some filters/rules. Is there any existing Java frameworks for doing it? If I need to implement on my own, what are the different strategies that you can suggest?
One solution in my mind is maintaining sql logs and executing same statements at other side during synchronization. Do you see any problems with this strategy?
There are a number of Java libraries for data synchronizing/replication. Two that I’m aware of are daffodil and SymmetricDS. In a previous life I foolishly implemented (in Java) my own data replication process. It seems like the sort of thing that should be fairly straightforward, but if the data can be updated in multiple places simultaneously, it’s hellishly complicated. I strongly recommend you use one of the aforementioned projects to try and bypass dealing with this complexity yourself.
