2.2.2 SyncML Message

A SyncML message is a well-formed XML document that adheres to the document type definition (DTD), but which does not require validation. While a SyncML message does not require validation, the XML in the document MUST adhere to the explicit order defined in the DTD. The XML document is identified by a SyncML (section document (or root) element type that serves as a parent container for the SyncML message.

The SyncML message consists of a header specified by the SyncHdr (section element type and a body specified by the SyncBody (section element type. The SyncML header identifies the routing and versioning information about the SyncML message. The SyncML body functions as a container for one or more SyncML commands (see section 2.2.7).

A SyncML command is specified by individual element types that provide specific details about the command, including any data or meta-information. The command serves as a container for these element types (see section 2.2.3).

MDM uses a subset of the SyncML message definition specified in [OMA-SyncMLRP1.2.2]. MDM-specific SyncML xml message format is defined in [OMA-DMRP1.2.1]. The following snippet identifies the required elements for a SyncML message as implemented by MDM.
