Default Does the content provider allow for MySql synchronization?

I am curious if setting up a content provider will allow for db synchronization with a MySql database on webserver? If not is there another way?

Thanks in advance,
Shawn

Default

Android doesn't currently include support for automated MySql server synchronization.

However, you can implement your Content Provider to synchronize data with a webserver if that's something you want to do. You'd have to write all the plumbing and logic yourself though.
