The database is used in the case where the iOS Sametime client goes in the background (i.e. when the user starts using another application).
In this scenario, the application doesn't run any more and is not able to retrieve incoming Sametime message - they are stored in the database instead and a notification is sent to the iOS device. The user can then bring back the Sametime in the foreground (make it active). The client then retrieves the messages stored in the db to display them.
