Server classes for remote data access

The server class you specify in the CREATE SERVER statement determines the behavior of a remote connection. The server classes give SQL Anywhere detailed server capability information. SQL Anywhere formats SQL statements specific to a server's capabilities.

All server classes are ODBC-based. Each server class has a set of unique characteristics that you need to know to configure the server for remote data access. You should refer to information generic to the server class category and also to the information specific to the individual server class.

The server classes include:


When using remote data access, if you use an ODBC driver that does not support Unicode, then character set conversion is not performed on data coming from that ODBC driver.
