The runtime Java classes


The runtime Java classes are the low-level classes that are made available to a database when it is created or Java-enabled. These classes include a subset of the Java API. These classes are part of the Sun Java Development Kit.

The runtime classes provide basic functionality on which to build applications. The runtime classes are always available to classes in the database.

You can incorporate the runtime Java classes in your own user-created classes: either inheriting their functionality or using it within a calculation or operation in a method.

Examples

Some Java API classes included in the runtime Java classes include:

Unlike user-defined classes, the runtime classes are not stored in the database. Instead, they are stored in files in the java subdirectory of your SQL Anywhere installation directory.
