You can specify which features are shown or enabled by the administration tools by using the initialization file named OEM.ini. This file must be in the same directory as the JAR files used by the administration tools (for example, C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 16\Java). If the file is not found, default values are used. Also, defaults are used for values that are missing from OEM.ini.


When you redeploy the administration tools, the tools cannot check for SQL Anywhere software updates. The Check For Updates menu items and options do not appear in redeployed versions.

Here is a sample OEM.ini file:

# reportErrors type is boolean, default = true

# checkForUpdates type is boolean, default = true

#    disableResultsEditing
#    executeToolbarButtonSemantics
#    fastLauncherEnabled
#    maximumDisplayedRows
#    showMultipleResultSets
#    showResultsForAllStatements
