This window has the following components:
Server Shows the name of the selected database server on which the database starts.
Database file Type the full path and name of the SQL Anywhere database file on the server computer. For example: C:\databases\mydatabase.db.
Encryption key Specifies the encryption key to start the database. You must supply the encryption key to start a database that is strongly encrypted. This field only applies for strongly encrypted databases.
Database name Type a name for the database to which you are connecting. You can use a database name to provide a more meaningful name than the file name for users of client applications. Since more than one database can run on a database server at one time, supplying a database name lets you distinguish between databases running on the same database server. The name you supply identifies the database until it is stopped.
The database name is optional; but it is recommended. If you don't supply a database name, the default database name is the root of the database file name (the file name without the .db extension). For example, if you have a database called sample.db, the default database name is sample.
Do not name your database utility_db. This name is reserved for the utility database. See The utility database.
Stop database after last disconnect Select this option to stop the database when the last connection to it closes. This option is different from the -ga server option, which automatically stops the database server.
