Requirements for developing ODBC applications

You can develop applications using a variety of development tools and programming languages, as shown in the figure below, and access the SQL Anywhere database server using the ODBC API.

ODBC applications and SQL Anywhere.

To write ODBC applications for SQL Anywhere, you need:

  • SQL Anywhere.

  • A C/C++ compiler capable of creating programs for your environment.

  • The Microsoft ODBC Software Development Kit. This is available on the Microsoft Developer Network, and provides documentation and additional tools for testing ODBC applications.


Some application development tools, that already have ODBC support, provide their own programming interface that hides the ODBC interface. The SQL Anywhere documentation does not describe how to use those tools.
