What operating systems is Sybase supporting jdbcConnect for?

In particular, I have a client that runs OS/2 Warp Server currently.
They'd consider switching to Sybase SQL Anywhere for their Warp Server
if they could get JDBC access to it running on their OS/2 Server. Any
chance of that being supported?

Is jdbcConnect just for NT?

jConnect does run on OS/2 - I don't know offhand whether we have
versions of SQL Anywhere and OSG which run on OS/2 though, is that
part of the question?

If you are asking about our support policy - I'm not sure whether
we have a list of "officially" supported OS's/VM's that Tech.
Support has access to. Maybe one of the support folks who monitor
this group can post that.

No, jConnect is for Java -- runs on every Java VM I've tried.

I'm confused. There is the client side and the server side right?

Do you have to add some daemon proxy on the _server_ side to accept
connections from Java/JDBC clients? If so, is there an OS/2 version of
that proxy process?

You use the term jConnect. Is that the same as jdbcConnect? (not
actually using the product yet).

Yes, there is an OS/2 version of SQL Anywhere. I've used it.

OSG is a gateway right? You don't need to use that for just a bunch of
clients and a single server do you?

Randall,


As jConnect is pure java it may reside anywhere where there is a java
VM which supports jdk 1.1 or 1.02.


The OSG is the Open Server Gateway. This is used by Sybase clients
(such as jConnect applications, dblib/ctlib applications) to
interact with SQL Anywhere. jConnect speaks TDS which the Open
Server understands, it translates it to a manner that sql anywhere
can understand. THE OSG can reside on a system other than
where SQL Anywhere resides. I do not know whether OSG exists
for OS2.


hope this answers your questions..

OSG is available for OS/2.

So then am I correct in concluding that one can have JDBC clients
running on a variety of OS's connect to SQL Anywhere running on OS/2?
