You can install any combination of the following software bundles:

  • Interactive SQL

  • Sybase Central with the SQL Anywhere plug-in

  • Sybase Central with the MobiLink plug-in

  • Sybase Central with the QAnywhere plug-in

  • SQL Anywhere Console utility (dbconsole)

The following components are also required when installing any of the above software bundles:

  • The SQL Anywhere ODBC Driver

  • The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.6.0. On Linux/Solaris, this would be the 32-bit version of the JRE. On Mac OS X, this would be the 64-bit version of the JRE.


To check your JRE version on Mac OS X, to go to the Apple menu, and then choose System Preferences » Software Updates. Click Installed Updates for a list of updates that have been applied. If Java 1.6.0 is not in the list, go to [external link]
