Accessing web services using web clients

SQL Anywhere can be used as a web client to access web services hosted by a SQL Anywhere web server or third party web servers such as Apache or IIS.

In addition to using SQL Anywhere as a web client, SQL Anywhere web services provide client applications with an alternative to traditional interfaces, such as JDBC and ODBC. They are easily deployed because additional components are not needed, and can be accessed from multi-platform client applications written in a variety of languages, including scripting languages — such as Perl and Python.
