Sybase ODBC Driver
ODBC Driver for Sybase ASE 12.5, 15 and Express
The Easysoft ODBC-Sybase Driver is an ODBC 3.5 driver for Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). It lets ODBC-enabled applications access Sybase ASE 12.5.x and 15+ (including Sybase ASE Express Edition) from Linux and major Unix platforms.
Supported applications include OpenOffice.org, StarOffice and ApplixWare. Supported interfaces include Perl DBI and DBD::ODBC, Python mxODBC and pyodbc and PHP.
The Easysoft ODBC-Sybase Driver is compatible with and includes unixODBC, the open source ODBC Driver Manager for non-Windows platforms. The Easysoft ODBC-Sybase Driver installation can automatically install the driver into unixODBC, making the ODBC-Sybase Driver immediately available to your ODBC applications. The unixODBC project is currently led by Easysoft developer Nick Gorham and we have many years of experience in supporting and testing our drivers with unixODBC.
The driver can be installed on remote client computers or locally on the database server. When installed on remote clients, the Easysoft ODBC-Sybase Driver uses the Sybase Tabular Data Stream (TDS) protocol to connect to the Sybase ASE database.
In addition, the Easysoft ODBC-Sybase Driver:
- Supports native Sybase ASE SQL syntax.
- Handles concurrent database connections.
- Is thread-safe and therefore safe to use behind multi-threaded applications.
- Supports all Sybase data types, including TIMESTAMP introduced in ASE 12.5.1.
- Supports transactions.
- Lets you generate diagnostic trace logs that enable you to monitor the ODBC calls an application makes.
