    Unanswered: Sybase Open Server Vs ASE

    Hi all,

    What is/are the major difference between Sybase ASE and Sybase Open Server.

    I have gone through infocenter.sybase.com and it says Open Server is used for developing applications using open client in a easier way.

    But what is the difference .. Can't we use ASE itself instead for developing of applications using open client.

    Any reference for the differences could also be of great help.

    You can use Sybase ASE to develop the database objects; tables, views, triggers, stored procedures etc.

    Open Server allows you to develop your application in a way that interacts with isql in the same way Sybase ASE does. For the most part, you don't need Sybase Open Server.

    Thanks for the reply richardcrossley..

    But the application which I am working on is built with Openclient and uses Open Server and somehow recently some of the libraries are not working properly.

    Do you have a link where I can download Openserver ( linux version ).

    Any information would be of great help.

    Open Server is part of the Sybase SDK.

    Typically, the software downloads would be available as part of your support contract with SAP.

    However, after some digging on the SAP support site I have found a way to obtain a trial edition.

    This support thread has the details on how to obtain it.

    Look for Dawn Kim's response on January 13th.

    Using the documentation I was able to search for the SDK and use this URL to capture the search results.
    http://search.sap.com/ui/scn#query=S...e&startindex=1

    Select the version you require, complete the form, click the link in the email and select the platform you require.

    I have reviewed two versions and have been unable to find Open Server components in either:
    SCN - SDK 15.7 SP127
    SCN - SDK 16.0

    Your mileage may vary.

    Kindest Regards,
