Synchronize Replica with a Geodataservice via REST?

Discussion created by jreid on Feb 27, 2014
I'm currently working on trying to find the best way to deploy a synchronize script to an application. I can create a model that synchs just fine in catalog that uses the connections created in catalog, however I want to know if it's possible to use the REST end point instead of an ArcCatalog connection? Reason being is the end product/client won't have anything but ArcEngine.
