Hi all,

Our current database is running on sybase 7.0.2.1402(dbeng7
version). Now I want to update the databese to version
9.0.2.2451.

When I am trying to update the DB from 7 to 9 using sybase
central, I get the following Error :

***** SQL error: Cannot access file 'rt.jar' -- No such file
or directory

The database 'ACCOUNT' could not be unloaded.

How I will solve the issue.

Thanks

1. This is the GA version of 9.0.2, which was released back in Nov. 2004.

2. This version of SQL Anywhere has been end-of-life'd:
http://www.sybase.com/detail?id=1061840. If you're just moving to this
version now, you should probably consider moving to a later major
version of the product, such as version 11.

Not being able to find "rt.jar" means that part of the Java Runtime
(JRE) files are missing from the install. Why this would happen from
*inside* Sybase Central is a bit of a mystery to me, since Sybase
Central is a Java product (in version 9) and should be already running.

Which version of Sybase Central are you trying to perform the unload in
in - the version 7 Sybase Central or version 9? You should be using the
version 9 Sybase Central to perform the rebuild.

Also, you can try installing a later 9.0.2 EBF to potentially mitigate
other problems. See:
