Sybase Central behavior changes and deprecated features

Following is a list of changes to Sybase Central introduced in version 12.0.0.

  • Sybase Central version changes to 6.1.0   SQL Anywhere 12 includes version 6.1.0 of Sybase Central 6.1.0.

  • Sybase Central only supports SQL Anywhere versions 10x and later databases   Support for version 9 database servers and databases created with version 9 software has been removed from the SQL Anywhere plug-in. When unloading and reloading the database into a reload file, or into a new or existing database, you can still connect to a database created with version 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 software running on a version 9 or later database server.

    For databases created by version 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 software running on a version 6, 7, 8, or 9 database server, you can connect to the database from the SQL Anywhere plug-in temporarily to do one of the following tasks:

    • Unload the database into a reload file.

    • Unload and reload the database into a new version 12 database.

    • Unload and reload the database into an existing version 12 database.

    The files for the database being unloaded must be located on the local computer.

    There is no support in the SQL Anywhere plug-in for databases created by version 4 or earlier software running on a version 5 or earlier server.

    See SQL Anywhere Server upgrades.

  • Support for 32- and 64-bit computers   The Sybase Central configuration file has been renamed:

    • On 32-bit computers, the .scRepository600 file is now named .scRepository610_32

    • On 64-bit computers, the .scRepository600 file can be named .scRepository610_32 and/or .scRepository610_64 depending upon your installation.

  • When deploying Sybase Central, you no longer need to create JPR files for the plug-ins   Previously, when deploying Sybase Central and SQL Anywhere you needed to create JPR files for each plug-in. Now, Sybase Central uses the environment variable %SQLANY12% to find and register the plug-ins.
