I wish Sybase will port soon OpenClient under MacOS X. This is a BSD unix
platform and there should be not big issue at supporting it (for
information, FreeTDS + sqsh is working under it by recompiling and without
modifications).

In fact MacOS X is based on the same unix backend as NextStep and once
uppon a time Sybase 4.2 was THE sql platform for NextStep ! (SQL Server
was delivered with NextStep if I remember well).

MacOS X may also be supported as a server plateform, but I understand it
is not an obvious market for Sybase (except if Apple understand that it is
a big idea to support Sybase for this port to push further its platform as
a server platform).

Regards,

Well, this newsgroup seems to be influential: today Sybase announced
that they'll port not only OpenClient to the Mac but also ASE 12.5 to
OS X.
See http://www.sybase.com/detail/1,6904,1016938,00.html for the
details.

If you are actively pursuing this platform and need OpenClient support on it then you
should contact a Sybase Sales Rep. They may be able to provide additional information
under a non-disclosure agreement.

I guessed Sybase will concentrate on their JConnect connectivity rather than
the OpenClient since they are promoting their ASE Java stuff. Since Mac OSX
supports
J2 standards natively using the Aqua interface, I was wondering how Sybase
Central Java edtition looks like.

I hope this will not be the case. Sybase is a client/server product with a
lot of applications and/or environement existing. Not porting its native
client to an OS is just as considering the OS is of no interest. And not
continuing to support the widest used client OS and focusing only on
windows is a big mistake.

About java, it already works well, but is not targeted at the same kind of
applications. jConnect is a very good product but I don't know any good
non java oriented front-end that use a java layer for connectivity.
