The following tables list components that are available across each platform supported by SAP SQL Anywhere. Note that, with a few exceptions, components that are available in all supported platforms are not listed. For ease of reading, the platforms are grouped by operating system vendor, operating system name and processor architecture.


Information about support for a specific operating system version is located at SAP SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms and Engineering Support Status.


The following tables are available:

  1. Databases
  2. Synchronization, Messaging and Replication
  1. Administration Tools
  2. Documentation





SQL Anywhere


Note: SQL Anywhere 17 database servers support connections from client applications using software from version 6.0.0 or later. Version 5 and earlier clients cannot connect to a version 17 database server.

For a list of platforms that can run the Relay Server and a list operating systems that it was tested on, please refer to this document.


The MobiLink server communicates with the consolidated databases through an ODBC driver. The ODBC driver may not be available for some consolidated databases on some platforms. The consolidated database and MobiLink server are not required to run on the same platform. Provided the consolidated database is running on a supported platform as specified by the database vendor, and the MobiLink server is communicating with the consolidated database using a supported ODBC driver, this is considered a supported MobiLink server configuration. The following table lists the platforms that can run the MobiLink server for supported consolidated databases.


For more details about the ODBC drivers, please refer to the document Recommended ODBC Drivers for MobiLink.
