Sybase Central and Interactive SQL new features

Following is a list of additions to Sybase Central and Interactive SQL introduced in version 11.0.0.

  • New fast launcher strategy   Previously, the Interactive SQL and Sybase Central fast launchers were started when a user logged in. Now, fast launchers are started only when Interactive SQL or Sybase Central is started. Then, the fast launcher continues to run for 30 minutes (configurable) after the application is shut down. This new strategy speeds up subsequent launches of Interactive SQL and Sybase Central done within the 30 minute window. See Using the fast launcher option.

  • Connect window enhancements and changes   The following enhancements have been made to the Connect window in Sybase Central and Interactive SQL:

    • New Save As ODBC Data Source tool   The Save As ODBC Data Source tool allows generate an ODBC data source using the connection parameters that you specify in the Connect window. To use this tool, click the Tools button on the Connect window, select Save As ODBC Data Source, and follow the onscreen instructions. See Create ODBC data sources using the Connect window.

    • New Copy Connection String To Clipboard tool   The Copy Connection String To Clipboard tool allows you to copy the connection string to the clipboard to see what is being passed to the database server. To use this tool, click the Tools button on the Connect window, and select Copy Connection String To Clipboard. Paste the connection string in a text editor to view it.

    • Connect Assistant   There is now a Connect Assistant tool in the right half of the Connect window. The Connect Assistant is a wizard-like feature designed to help you connect to a database.

    • Enhancements to the Advanced tab   The Advanced tab now displays a table of properties, as well as brief descriptions of the properties themselves.

    • New Networking tab   The Networking tab allows you to specify options for the supported protocols: shared memory and TCP/IP. This new tab replaces the functionality offered by the Search Network For Database Servers option that was previously located on the Database tab.

  • Keyboard shortcuts   Now in the Sybase Central Code Editor and in the SQL Statements pane in Interactive SQL, you can use keyboard shortcuts to increase and decrease the indentation of your code and comments. In addition you can use keyboard shortcuts to add and remove both the double hyphen and double slash comment indicators. See Sybase Central keyboard shortcuts.
