This section includes changes to the version numbers of supported and unsupported third-party components.
Support for version 8 and earlier databases When using Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console utility, databases created with versions of the software older than Adaptive Server Anywhere 8.0.0 are no longer supported. This includes databases that were created with older software and then upgraded using newer software. Attempting to load such databases will result in an error on database startup. You can connect to these databases from Sybase Central to unload them into a new version 10 database. See Upgrading SQL Anywhere.
jConnect version 5.5 and 6.0.5 supported SQL Anywhere now supports jConnect versions 5.5 and 6.0.5 (version 5.5 was supported in 9.0.2) for connecting to the database server. jConnect is available as a separate download from http://www.sybase.com/products/informationmanagement/softwaredeveloperkit/jconnect. Consult the jConnect documentation for information about its supported features.
Processor requirements on Intel x86 architectures On Intel x86 architectures, SQL Anywhere supports only Pentium-class and newer processors, and will not start on older processors, such as the 80386 or 80486.
