The forum is currently being migrated to a new host. While the migration happens, the old server is still available. Once the new machine is ready, I will copy the database to the new machine. Feel free to ask and answer questions in the meantime.

Many applications of SQL Anywhere involve static data sets that are then used in conjunction with the "dynamic" part of the database - examples are things like product lists and increasingly with the support of spacial data - large geographic data sets.

It would be very useful in these circumstances to be able to ship users a replacement dbspace containing the tables, indexes etc required; rather than having to truncate / load tables etc as at the moment (or use a separate remote database).

Clearly there would have to be some restrictions especially as regards referential integrity between objects in different dbspaces - but these could be fairly strict - (eg if you replace a dbspace all RI pointing to it is dropped and you have to re-create it - or you can't replace the dbspace until all RI pointing to it from outside has been dropped).

Would that suggestion include a "BACKUP DATABASE without dbspace ..." feature?
