Configuring the administration tools

You can control which features are shown or enabled by the administration tools. Control is done through an 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 10\java). If the file is not found, default values will be used. Also, defaults will be used for values that are missing from OEM.ini.

Here is the structure for OEM.ini:

# reportErrors type is boolean, default = true

# checkForUpdates type is boolean, default = true

# The help file name is made up of 
# path + file separator + prefix + current language + suffix + ".jar".
# Here is an example: c:\sa10\java\dbmaen10.jar
# The file separator is the appropriate file separator for the current
# operating system, for example, "\" for Windows or "/" for UNIX.
# The current language is the two letter ISO code for language.  
# For example, en for English.
# directory type is string, default is an empty string
# prefix type is string, default is an empty string
# suffix type is string, default is an empty string

If reportErrors is false, the administration tool does not present a dialog to the user inviting them to submit error information to iAnywhere if the software crashes. Instead, the traditional, simpler dialog is be displayed. If checkForUpdates is false, the administration tool does not check for SQL Anywhere software updates automatically, nor does it give the user the option to do it at their discretion.

Directory, prefix, and suffix allow you to override the location and name of the help file.
