Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.


One of our customers wants to replicate parts of the SQL Anywhere 16 database to a data lake (either Azure or AWS - not sure). One of the requirements is jConnect v4 drivers. I cannot find anywhere to download these drivers for SQL Anywhere 16. I have a full version on my computer and perhaps the driver is already installed? However, I dont't know where to look and what file(s) to provide to my customer. Any ideas? My customer has a full version of SQL Anywhere 16 as well (not OEM), so I guess they should have the correct license to use jConnect/JDBC.

jConnect is supported for use with SQL Anywhere but is a component of the SDK FOR SAP ASE(SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SDK). You can obtain jConnect in the SDK which can downloaded via the SAP Software Downloads site.

I checked the note and followed the download link but neither SDK FOR ASE nor SDK FOR SAP ASE showed any result. My best guess usually is the ASE Express Edition. jConnect afaik is Pure Java, so the OS restriction of the XE shouldn't be an issue.

The "SDK FOR SAP ASE" does not exist under S - SUPPORT PACKAGES & PATCHES

False: 5. From the list of software, click "SDK for SAP ASE".

True: 5. From the list of software, click "SY SOFTWARE DEVELOPER KIT".
