does sybase 12 to 17 not support multiple active result sets? like other can do in mysql or postgresql!? USING ODBC!!!!

can have multiple default result sets open and can interleave reading from them without closing the first opened? by example using JAva or Php? USING ODBC!

I CITED AS EXAMPLE FOR WINDOSERS USERS: in Mocosoft SQLserver you can open a cursor and then iterate thorught results, and before close it, make another query and then iterate in second cursor result!

in sybase using odbc i having troubles with that! there's no support for "sub cursor fetch" in sybase n this way?

i can belevie that software libre projects have more avanced in this like postgresql and mysql.. seems opensource are more powered today!

edited: clarify that its using ODBC due its not windoze related, its OS agnostic! ok!

AFAIK support for multiple active result sets on a single connection is unique to Microsoft SQL Server (which isn't open source the last time I checked)...

I can't find support for it in postgresql or mysql or anything else, which might be an indication of its popularity or lack thereof.

Have you tried opening a second connection from your application? ...or are you trying to migrate from SQL Server to SQL Anywhere?

1) support for multiple active result sets are not unique to mocosoft sqlserver, postgres mariadb and mysql supports easyle..

2) sure u are not a linux users avocate.. it can easyle corroborate making a few lines of code.. that's why i put this question here!

3) i OPENED A SECOND CONNECTION and does not permit making query only with sybase (either Anywhere or SAP) , i'm not migrate from mocosoft sqlserver.. and i never will use mocosoft for a serius proyect

Please show us an example of the "few lines of code" that support MARS in anything other than SQL Server... I am very interested!

Please provide links showing that PostgreSQL and MySQL support multiple active result sets.

All I can find in Google are a few indirect complaints...

"Even in the longer term, PostgreSQL doesn't really provide facilities for implementing MARS." - Implement MARS (Multiple Active Result Set)

"I assume MySql connector doesn't support MARS (Multiple active result sets)." - Mysql connector - MultipleActiveResultSets issue

i dont use mocosoft sqlserver, i cited the "mars" as a point to all of windosers users understand.. but taking in consideration your shot eyes see it: https://github.com/FreeTDS/freetds/issues/131

I blame lack of coffee for that comment... AFAIK SQL Anywhere has always let you have multiple cursors open on a single connection (see the example code posted as an answer to this question).

The subject of "multiple result sets returned by a single procedure call" is a whole other kettle of fish. As far as I know, those result sets can't be interleaved or nested, the best that can happen is part or all of an early result set can be abandoned or skipped before starting to fetch a later result set... but it is still sequential... or am I wrong again? :)

As Volker said, this is an interesting topic, too bad mckaygerhard doesn't have much to say that's useful

(18 Jul, 07:46) Breck Carter

I don't think FreeTDS works with SQL Anywhere very well (or at all, after SQL Anywhere 7).

Try using an interface that is actually supported... FreeTDS is not.

based on all the comments here seems the conclusion its that are not supported! THE QUESTION WAS IF THERE ARE SUPPORT FOR OPEN SIMULTANEOS TWO OR MORE CURSORS ONE BETWEEN OTHER, not if something can give "tricks" to workaround some that are not supported!

until now! no one reponse can give me a clear anwers and the ASE / sybase or anywhere seems does not support any of the commmont great features of mysql?

CITED: not in powerbuilder and not with the sahred builder lib, i mean USING ODBC WITH COMMON STANDAR LANGUAGES LIKE Php, JAVA, BASIC, not the crappy paid only powerbuilder that does not support sqlite and other modern features!

how great its the free software..

I like that you have selected a wrong answer and it suits your needs. Probably you don't know how to use the open source software correctly. That is why I am helping you for free: MySql doesn't support MARS.
But you can always use this feature regardless the MySql has it or not.
And yes, I don't like the way how you talk with us. That is why I have given you a negative vote to your wrong answer.

(18 Jul, 16:41) mckaygerhard

To emphasis what Vlad said: THIS ANSWER IS WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG.

There are two other answers that contain actual code showing SQL Anywhere can process multiple open cursors on a single ODBC connection, both interleaved (open1, open2, fetch1, fetch2, fetch1, fetch2, close1, close2) and nested (open1, fetch1, open2, fetch2, close2, fetch1, open2, fetch2, close2, close1).

This ability has existed in SQL Anywhere for many years, and claims to contrary are false.

> powerbuilder ... always use OWN shared lib

Yes, PowerBuilder application IDE uses its "own" ODBC API, that's how ODBC works.

Every application IDE provides its own "ODBC API", and every RDBMS provides its own "ODBC Driver", and the (theoretical) beauty of ODBC was that any application could then connect to any RDBMS without having to build a separate "database interface module" for each IDE/RDBMS pair.

ODBC was created by proprietary software vendors: primarily Microsoft, plus Tandem, DEC, Sybase and others.

In the examples provided here, PowerBuilder uses PBODB115.DLL for the "ODBC API", together with the pbodb115.ini configuration file, and SQL Anywhere uses "DBODBC16.DLL" for the ODBC Driver.

> i cites in other languajes as ... java

If you are trying to use ODBC to connect between java and SQL Anywhere, you may not have much success... SQL Anywhere 16 offers JDBC support instead of ODBC for Java, via two drivers: the recommended "SQL Anywhere JDBC 4.0 driver" which uses the Command Sequence protocol, and the pure Java "jConnect" driver which uses TDS.

> paid software

SQL Anywhere falls into that category. Do you even have a copy, or are you just pretending to have a problem? :)

Take my vote for the example. Now I know how to use server-side cursors with the rowgenerator.
To be honest, I was always told that cursors are a bad practice that I have never used in the software I barely develop :)

Just to clarify: The example is entirely coded in PowerScript embedded SQL on the client side, not Watcom SQL inside the server.

(18 Jul, 08:14) Breck Carter

that I have never used in the software

AFAIK, if you consume some kind of result set, it does almost always mean you are using a cursor (although the API might hide that fact). - It's just that they are more "visible" within SQL code blocks, aka server-side code...:)

(18 Jul, 08:32) Volker Barth

@Breck: So does that code run against a MS SQL Server database, too? Or only with MARS enabled?

That might really answer the OP's question, if that is a question at all:)

oh, I have missed this. Thanks.

(18 Jul, 08:56) Vlad

I haven't looked at the API for a long time. Yes, you are correct. Here is the help reference: DCX: Cursor principles. I have found two types of the result set that you can return from SA: either the cursor or the whole result set that behaves as an in-memory table.

UPDATE: That was originally posted as an comment on Breck's second answer and mckay's reply.

While I might get down-voted again for not offering any "real code", I think it's important to supply an answer to the original question - in contrast to the accepted wrong answer. Take your own choice:)

END UPDATE

mckay replied to Breck's first sample:

That's what you commented on Breck's other answer. And now he has taken the time and effort to show you that your assumption (that SQL Anywhere uses different connections to handle nested cursors) is wrong: It does that within the same connection (as proved by the same connection number used in both cursor loops), something MS SQL Server AFAIK can only do with the mentioned MARS enabled.


So my conclusion is: SQL Anywhere CAN DO what you seem to be asking for, out of the box.

In my world, I would give a big thanks for all folks here who tried to answer your (rather vague) question.

"To whom it may concern":

(2 days ago) Volker Barth

Here's another link to that issue. To cite from that:

Although this is a generic document about using Multiple Active Statements (MAS) with DBD::ODBC, the principal focus is on using MAS with Microsoft SQL Server, as ODBC drivers for most other databases support MAS out of the box.

Note, I don't use EasySoft, so I can't validate that claim.

However, in my experience (mainly with MS SQL Server, SQL Anywhere and - years ago - with ASE), I've come across such restrictions (particularly the famous "Connection is busy with results for another hstmt" error message) only with MS SQL Server, not SQL Anywhere... - the latter allows several active statements per connection, whereas MS SQL Server seems to allow that only when MARS is enabled.

So in my understanding, you can have parallel active result sets on the same connection with SQL Anywhere as long as you use different queries/HSTMTs/whatever your API uses for a "statememnt handle".


I don't have any technical knowledge about database driver design but I think the limitation has to do with the fact that SQL Server (at least when using "default result sets") expects the client to consume the whole result set whereas SQL Anywhere excepts the client to only read as much of a result set as it desires. Mark has explained those differences in detail here.

The question Mark answered dealt with multiple sequential result sets, not multiple active (nested) result sets.

In particular, it didn't deal with interleaved fetches from two result sets, which is what MARS supports... I think... :)

That reply of Mark's (to the question Volker linked to) is very interesting. I certainly didn't know that MSSQL made you consume the entire result set whatever. Sounds quite unpleasant!

Breck, I'm aware of that. Nevertheless, reading the cited EasySoft article (including the explanation of MS SQL Server "firehose" cursors), I was reminded of Mark's answer, and - re-stating my claim "I don't have any technical knowledge about database driver design" - I very wildly guessed that it might have to do with that.

As stated, the message "Connection is busy with results for another hstmt" has met me often with SQL Server but never with SQL Anywhere.


And now I hope some expert like Mark or Jack are about to really answer the question.:)

(18 Jul, 06:11) Volker Barth

I guess you can change that behaviour by using a fitting cursor type on the client side. In case you really need the entire result set, it is probably a very efficient approach, - otherwise not so:)

Here's another example, this time with "cursor2" nested inside "cursor1"; i.e., cursor2 is declared, opened, fetched and closed for each row fetched from cursor1. The DECLARE for cursor2 uses the value fetched from cursor1 in the WHERE clause.

Note that this code is written in PowerScript and runs on the client side, not inside the SQL Anywhere server.

Breck, I don't use PowerShell, so I can't do that - but could you add something like a MESSAGE statement with connection_property('Number') within both loops to prove that this does make use of only one connection for both cursor loops, as there still seems to be a doubt about that on the pathway?

Not PowerShell (which I don't use either), but PowerBuilder's PowerScript scripting language (which is now an Appeon product).

But yes, I will add that... to both examples... sigh. Plus make the use of the default SQLCA object explicit on all embedded SQL statements where it applies (DECLARE and EXECUTE).

And now we wait for the next turd to appear on the pathway :)

*A very big thanks, very good guy you are:)

BTW: I meant PowerScript, not PowerShell - it's quite easy to do not get messed up by this F**:)

Both examples use ODBC.
