The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

To cite a current Chris Kleisath answer on the future of SQL Anyhwere from the product futures newsgroup:

We are excited about the prospect for SQL Anywhere into the future as part of SAP. On April 10, SAP unveiled its strategy for the database market, and SQL Anywhere is a big part of it.

Is there any more information on these topics, e.g. on statements like

"SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere [...] is planned to be the front-end database for the SAP HANA platform [...]"

Or is this just all too early to give more details (which would be understandable, of course)?

EDIT: Original NNTP thread "Future of SQL Anywhere" posted by R. Snyder on 4/20/2012 - here linked to Chris's response.

Besides the nice discussion on NNTP which has risen from Alexey's "answer", I guess my question was too early asked for a real answer, and that's not unexpected. - I will keep patient:)

Very interesting info. Please, can you give url to original topic? I can't find product futures newsgroup in sybase site.

For the particular thread, I have added the link in the question.

In general, that NG can be accessed via browser over the following link:

Though I would recommend a NNTP reader like Thunderbird, the NG is named "sybase.public.sqlanywhere.product_futures_discussion"...

Thank you very much for link. But if you will search this news group in sybase site: there are no sybase.public.sqlanywhere.product_futures_discussion in list. So it's problem for visitors, who don't know that 'sybase future' is exists ;) Please, fix site.

@Alexey, I'm just another customer (and not very actively using the NNTP forums), so I would suggest that you add your request for a fix (which I second) as a separate question (or use another way to contact Sybase).

FWIW, the product futures NG has been very quiet the last monthes...

I have sent an email to get this resolved. Thanks for pointing it out.

The best way to resolve this problem would be to copy all the threads over to this forum.

Oh, yes, I still remember this quite old FAQ, as you will do, Breck, I'm sure:)
