I may have not understand everything in your previous description. Why
would you need an extra software on the remote DB ??
All the steps I've describe should work from the client.
All you want is a kind of cache for the client, that you can
invalidate when you judge it needed ?
If you need to check UPDATE on your remote DB, you're stuck, except
with 5.0.10 (at least) with triggers. If it's only INSERT, then you
just have to query the last rows you don't have (with a timestamp, an
If you don't have any total order relationship in your data,but have a
unique ID, retrieve all the ID from your remote DB, remote with the
one you have locally, and then query the full rows. No extra software
needed on the server !
