I picked up a copy of Power J at the ISUG recently and have installed it on
my Windows 95 system, including the SQL Anywhere on the CD-ROM. I would like
to try out the database connectivity using wither the JDBC-ODBC bridge or
jConnect. Coming from a Unix background, I am not much of a Windows whiz, so
that may be part of my troubles.

Anyway, I am trying to get a simple transaction object to succesfully do the
"Test connection", but have been unable so far. I have tried searching the
documentation, but it is not clear. I think my problem is that I do not know
what to specify as the Data Source URL on the transaction object properties
window. What would that be for SQL Anywhere running on the same machine? I
did set the environmental variable SQLANY to point to the SQL Anywhere
installation and also SYBASE points to the Sybase bits the CD installed
automatically. I also modified my path as recommended in the docs. By the
way, I did all this in my autoexec.bat. I guess that is valid for Win 95.
So, anyway what exactly do I need to do to set up a valid connection to 1)
SQL Anywhere running on the same machine and 2) to connect to a Sybase
dataserver running on a Solaris box over the Ethernet?

Any help would be much appreciated.

You should ask PowerJ questions in the "code_name_jato" newsgroup (which
should really be renamed soon!). I've answered it there.
