Getting started with SQL Anywhere Server

Getting started

SQL Anywhere provides three methods to administer your system: Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, and command-line utilities. In most cases, the choice of which tool to use is your preference. The majority of tasks, such as connecting to a database, are supported by all three methods.

The tutorials and introductory materials listed in this section use all three methods to create and manage SQL Anywhere databases.

For an overview of Sybase Central and Interactive SQL, see Design and management tools.
