Thanks, Chris.

Now if they'd make their development kit free, I'd be happy...

Their development kit is free.  Just go and download it of the web site.

You get the full enterprise edition with a few goodies thrown in and the only limitation placed on it is a maximum of 5 user connections.

They did not starting limiting the number of connections until 12.5.1

grant300, can you give me a specific URL? I spent a lot of frustrating time trying to find anything I could download for free that has the SDK, to no avail. I also spent a lot of time of the phone with a wide variety of Sybase people, and they were either clueless or they said there was no way to get it for free.

I didn't see your comment at first, grant300, cause I was busy downloading the free ASE for Linux. :>

Hi again, Chris. I registered with MySybase a long time ago. When I began needed an SDK, I found the EBF's but just being registered isn't enough to download them, and the client for the contract I'm working on won't renew support. None of the Sybase folks would grant me access to download those without an active support contract. But the free Linux solution lets me develop and test without having to depend on other's policies and prejudices.

Here you go.  Be careful; it is one of the long, tricky URLs ;-)

Actually, despite where you wind up, you have to navigate several layers deep to find it.

BTW  Last time I looked, the Open Server Development kit was NOT included.  Open Client is though.

Sorry for any inconvenience but...
This is not a question thread.  It is an announcement.  There is no basis for an award on this thread, and therefore it falls under the guidelines as "point passing"
50 Points refunded.
