Catalog changes

The catalog has undergone major changes in version 10.0.0. The most significant change is that system tables have been renamed to include an I at the beginning of their name. If you attempt to access the system tables, you will receive a permission denied error. Information in the system tables is made available through system views. There is one system view per system table, and, for backward compatibility, the system view names coincide with the table names from previous versions of SQL Anywhere. For example, in 9.0.2, there was a system table called SYS.SYSARTICLE. In version 10.0.0 that system table is now called SYS.ISYSARTICLE, and a corresponding system view, SYS.SYSARTICLE.

The catalog now also contains consolidated views. These are views which provide commonly needed joins from two or more tables or views. Most of the consolidated views were present as system views in previous releases.

Some system tables and views have been deprecated or removed from the catalog. However, most compatibility views are provided.

The following table provides a complete mapping of the catalog from Adaptive Server Anywhere 9.0.2 to SQL Anywhere 10.0.0. The first column, 9.0.2 system table/view, shows names of the 9.0.2 system tables, followed by a forward slash ('/'), and then the name of the 9.0.2 associated view(s). The middle column, 10.0.0 system table, contains the 10.0.0 table name. The final column, 10.0.0 system view, contains the associated 10.0.0 view name(s), as well as compatibility notes.

Note

A dash (-) in any of the columns indicates that there is no equivalent object. For example, a new table in the catalog for the 10.0.0 release results in a dash for the table in the 9.0.2 column.
