I am still trying to get a running (working) native JDBC database connection to a SQL Anywhere 17 database. I tried with the following URL and Driver settings on Windows Server (2008 R2) and OS X 10.11.5. On both platforms, a SQL Anywhere version 188.8.131.529 is running. It's a standard install done by the installer (wizard). Unfortunately I have no success on making a connection on either OS.
In the database server connection fields URL and Driver, I use:
This settings are based on my older thread about JDBC database connections. Read thread here if appropriate: http://sqlanywhere-forum.sap.com/questions/16414/jdbc-driver-for-oracle-data-modeler
Using following settings works with jconn3.jar on both platforms:
What settings and driver files are other people using? Where are they located?
I still have hope to get the native connection run. The motivation for me is that as far as I understood it is a (much) faster connection.

Your use of DSN= is incorrect. That should probably be DBN= given you are specifying a database name.
If you have a working ODBC DataSource (DSN) you can use DSN= to pick that up (and all the settings saved in the ODBC.ini registry under that will get picked up as well; ie. with that you may not need anything else)
If Links= is giving you a problem you can switch to HOST= instead now.

Make sure the JDBC driver is in your classpath (Windows example here).
If you are writing the JDBC app, your connection code should look something like this (add/replace whatever connection parameters you like).
