BCrypt implements strong Blowfish password hashing. I need BCrypt password hashing function to use directly inside SQL Anywhere 12 database. I know such function is not built-in, but can we create it on our own?
I ask because I have found similar solution with MS-SQL Server: http://blog.tcs.de/using-the-bcrypt-hash-algorithm-in-ms-sql-server/ - can we do the same within SQL Anywhere 12 to make BCrypt available?

The blog post you reference talks about calling a C# DLL via SQL Server's .Net CLR external function interface.
You can do the same thing in SQL Anywhere 12 using the CLR external environment.
For a glimpse of what makes the external call interface different from external environments, see this blog post.
