In both Oracle and PostgreSQL I can get an MD5 hash value for any given string.

For example In Oracle 11gR2:

SQL> select rawtohex( DBMS_CRYPTO.Hash (utl_raw.cast_to_raw('xyz'),2) ) as hash_val from dual;

HASH_VAL
--------------------------------
D16FB36F0911F878998C136191AF705E

and in PostgreSQL 9.6:

ft_node=# select md5('xyz') as hash_val;
             hash_val             
----------------------------------
 d16fb36f0911f878998c136191af705e
(1 row)

As you see, apart from the case, the values match.

How can I get similar functionality in SQL Anywhere 17 ?

It's called hash and it works thusly:

SELECT hash ( 'xyz', 'MD5' ) AS hash_val;

hash_val

...and it also offers much better hash algorithms than MD5, say SHA256...
