I have the following architecture :
Oracle 9i on a HP-UX system
Oracle 9i Lite Server on a Windows 2000 system
10 PDAs with Oracle lite, that synchronize with the databases on
HP-UX, through 9i lite server.

I know that it is possible to have large files (Executables for the
PDAs) in the HP-UX Oracle database and transfer these ones to the PDAs
through a synchronization process.

But while a synchronization, if the connection hangs, is it possible
to restart the synchronization without having to transfer all the data
again ? I mean : restart the synchronization from the last bytes
transferred... Then If the connection would hang at 2Mb out of 4Mb, it
would not try to transfer the first 2Mb again...

I hope I've been clear enough...

THank you very much :)
