Did you know that SQL Anywhere has an associated Wiki site? It’s true! Check it out here:

Why have a SQL Anywhere Wiki site?

The SQL Anywhere Wiki site is intended to complement the existing SQL Anywhere Documentation ( http://dcx.sap.com/ ) by providing walkthroughs, examples, and explanations of how different components of SQL Anywhere can be used to form parts of larger solutions.

The current SQL Anywhere Wiki site already has a number of older articles migrated from Sybase.com and we are continuing to migrate even more. We are also posting a number of new articles (including a GPIO tutorial for SQL Anywhere on Linux ARM!) and are continuously posting new content often. The primary intent is that the Wiki will be a dynamic reference for all customers to help them build and deploy SQL Anywhere component configurations with greater ease and speed.

Would you like to help us build up this Wiki resource? We would love to have your help and feedback! There are two ways you can currently help contribute to the SQL Anywhere Wiki:

1. Submit a new Wiki article

Do you have a tutorial / Wiki topic that isn’t currently covered by the existing Wiki articles or the SQL Anywhere documentation and would like to share it with the wider SQL Anywhere community? The first step to creating a new Wiki article is to sign in to SCN:

New wiki pages are always created in the SQL Anywhere staging area so that they can be moderated before being published:

                http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/stage/Staging+Area+for+SQL+Anywhere

To get to the SQL Anywhere staging area to create a new Wiki document, go to the right-hand side and click on one of the “Staging Area” links:

Once in the Staging Area, click on “Create” and then “Knowledge Management Template”:

You can always return to a document in the draft area and continue editing it at a later time.

Alternatively, you can then click on the following link directly to create a new article in the staging area:

          http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/createpage-entervariables.action?spaceKey=stage&fromPageId=361234695&templateId=353435649

Once you have finished creating the article, send a message to one of the Wiki moderators with the page URL in order to have the article reviewed and moved to the main Wiki site:

2. Edit an existing Wiki article

Is there a problem with an existing article and can you make the changes to correct it? Thank you for your assistance! It’s very simple to do – first, sign in to SCN:

Once logged in, navigate to the page that requires an update and click on ‘Edit’ or type ‘e’:
