To connect to a database, the client application must call one of the following SQL Anywhere API functions:
|OLE DB||Connecting to a database using OLE DB|
|ADO.NET||Connecting to a database|
|Embedded SQL||Embedded SQL|
|Sybase Open Client|
|SQL Anywhere JDBC driver|
|jConnect JDBC driver|
The SQL Anywhere API uses connection information included in the call from the client application to locate and connect to the database server. Information sent by the client application can include information held in a data source, the SQLCONNECT environment variable, or the server address cache. The following figure is a simplified representation of the process.
