Saving connection parameters in ODBC data sources

Many client applications, including application development systems, use the ODBC interface to access SQL Anywhere. When connecting to the database, ODBC applications typically use ODBC data sources. An ODBC data source is a set of connection parameters, stored in the registry or in a file.

For SQL Anywhere, ODBC data sources can be used by all client interfaces, except Open Client and jConnect. On Unix and Windows CE, the data source is stored in a file. ODBC data sources can not be used on NetWare.
