jConnect 5.5 (jconn2.jar) with ASE 15.7 or ASA 16?

We have a Java1.3 application and wanted to know if it can work with ASE 15.7 and/or ASA 16.

I have tested it with ASE 15.7, so far so good. After all, we are not using any Sybase-specific feature.

However, I would like to know, if there is any document or reference, talking about the compatibility of jConnect 5.5 (jconn2.jar)?

Something like this page?

And I read in this page that, ASE 15.7 has a compatibility mode for 12.5 user. Does it help in my case (compatibility with jConnect 5.5)?


Hello Henry,

I'm not sure if you use an SAP application, if not then the following area is much better to ask ASE questions:

SAP Sybase ASE for Custom Applications

or for Anywhere go to here:

SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere

This area of SCN should be only for SAP applications running on ASE.

And finally an answer to your question:

JConnect 5.5 wasn't not tested with ASE 15.7 and ASA 16, cause it's end of life.

Check the Interoperiablitly matrix of ASE 15.7:

Adaptive Server Interoperability

For ASA 16 you can take a look to the documentation what JDBC Drivers you need:

SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere Documentation

The compatibilty mode is not for 12.5 users, but it will try to use the 12.5 optimizer. See here for a more details what compatiblity mode is:

SAP Sybase ASE compatibilty mode

With kind regards
