Default connection parameters
  • You can use default behavior to make a connection and leave some of the connection parameters unspecified. However, using the default behavior in a production environment can cause problems if the application is installed with other SQL Anywhere applications. If you are having problems connecting, explicitly specifying values instead of relying on defaults may resolve your problem.

  • It is recommended that you always specify the server name using the ServerName connection parameter especially if you are running an embedded SQL Anywhere server. See ServerName (Server) connection parameter.

The following list describes several common connection scenarios and the default client connection parameters that are required in each case.

 No defaults for a local server (recommended method)
 Default database server and database
 Default database server
 Default database
 Default database server on network computer
