Setting the Bulk Load Timeout PropertyLocate this document in the navigation structure

The Subscribe bulk load timeout property is a package level property targeted to BlackBerry clients for initial server-side subscription operations.


Server-side subscription improves performance and is enabled on the client if the device has a secure digital (SD) memory card enabled. The timeout allows you to set an initial subscription push timeout period. If the timeout period is reached, SAP Mobile Server sends the database file to the device, whether the initial subscribe is complete or not. The timeout window signals that the device has received sufficient import messages to send the server-built database to the client.
Note This option is only available for SAP® Data Orchestration Engine Connector (DOE-C) packages.
