Getting Started

Q. What is SQL Anywhere? SQL Anywhere is a comprehensive package that provides data management and data movement technologies, enabling the rapid development and deployment of database-powered applications. SQL Anywhere is ideally suited for applications requiring enterprise caliber data management without the support or resources of a data center. With more than 9 million deployed seats, SQL Anywhere powers embedded database applications in desktop, server, mobile and remote office environments.

Q. What is included in SQL Anywhere?

  • Database technologies:
    • SQL Anywhere (Adaptive Server Anywhere) is a small footprint, enterprise caliber relational database that provides high performance and reliability. Its enterprise functionality includes full transaction processing, referential integrity, SQL and Java stored procedures, triggers, row-level locking, automatic event scheduling, automatic back-up and automatic recovery.
    • UltraLite is a relational database with an even smaller footprint for memory-constrained devices, requiring as little as 300 KB of memory, yet it provides enterprise features such as referential integrity, transaction processing and b encryption.
  • Enterprise Synchronization:
    • MobiLink is a highly-scalable, session-based synchronization technology for exchanging data among relational databases and other non-relational data sources in occasionally connected environments. MobiLink offers advanced conflict resolution, data subsetting and encryption for secure, bi-directional exchange of data over both wired and wireless networks.
    • QAnywhere provides a comprehensive store and forward messaging solution for mobile users. QAnywhere mobile applications can exchange data with any JMS-based system such as J2EE application servers or enterprise messaging systems like MQSeries.
    • SQL Remote is based on a store and forward architecture that allows occasionally connected users to synchronize data in a remote Adaptive Server Anywhere database using a file or message transfer mechanism such as FTP or email.
  • Tools:
    • SQL Anywhere includes a powerful suite of tools to improve the design and development of database-driven applications and simplify the management of databases and synchronization systems. Tools include Sybase Central, PowerDesigner Physical Architect, Index Consultant, Info Maker and MobiLink Monitor.
