has anybody experience with running SQL Anywhere and/or MobiLink inside a Docker container. Could not find much about it on the web.

I just wonder if this is technically possible.

Thanks for your help and best regards, Alex

Yes, SQLAnywhere can run in a docker container.

I've been running SQLAnywhere 12 in an ubuntu docker container for a year in a development environment, and haven't encountered any issues.

The database file & log can reside on the host and be mounted as a shared volume, so database changes can persist.
