Introduction to system procedures

The following sections document the system procedures included with SQL Anywhere. A few system procedures, such as sa_get_table_definition, are implemented as functions. However, because they are used in the same context and manner as system procedures, they are included with the system procedures, and their naming is similar to the system procedures (sa_xxx).

SQL Anywhere includes the following kinds of system procedures:

  • System procedures, for displaying system information in tabular form.

  • SOAP and HTTP services system procedures, for supporting web services.

  • MAPI and SMTP system procedures, for sending electronic mail.

  • Transact-SQL system and catalog procedures. See Adaptive Server Enterprise system and catalog procedures.
