I'm attempting to use JConnect and ASA 6.0 from an Application Server. The
App server appears to be able to connect to the Database using the supplied
driver and Url.

The app server then tries to get a list of table info but produces the
following error.

I'm trying to determine if the specified operation is an unsupported
function of JConnect or an error in the App Server.

Can anyone tell me if the error is a valid JConnect error?

"com.sybase.jdbc2.utils.UnimplementedOperationException: The method
com.sybase.jdbc2.tds.RowFormatToken.getTableName(39) has not been completed
and should not be called."

This is your culprit. You are using the above method from
ResultSetMetadata and the current versions of TDS make this impossible
to return without a significant performance hit therefore we throw an
