SQL Anywhere 12.0.0 » SQL Anywhere Server - Programming


Deploying databases and applications

When you have completed a database application, you must deploy the application to your end users. Depending on the way in which your application uses SQL Anywhere (as an embedded database, in a client/server fashion, and so on) you may have to deploy components of the SQL Anywhere software along with your application. You may also have to deploy configuration information, such as data source names, that enable your application to communicate with SQL Anywhere.

Check your license agreement

Redistribution of files is subject to your license agreement with Sybase. No statements in this document override anything in your license agreement. Check your license agreement before considering deployment.

The following deployment steps are examined in this section:

  • Determining required files based on the choice of application platform and architecture.

  • Configuring client applications.

Much of the section deals with individual files and where they need to be placed. However, the recommended way of deploying SQL Anywhere components is to use the Deployment Wizard or to use a silent install. For information, see Using the Deployment Wizard and Using a silent install for deployment.
