The following tables list components that are available across each platform supported by 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 SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms and Engineering Support Status.

For a list of platforms that can run the Redirector 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.

15 Not supported by UltraLite components. Static Java API requires JDK 1.2.2 or greater. JDK 1.4 is not supported.

16 Pocket PC 3.0 and higher required.

17 For all systems other than the file sharing system, you must have purchased and installed the appropriate message system software for SQL Remote to function over this system. SQL Remote does not include the underlying message system software.
