Component summary

Enclosed is Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise version 12.5. Server and client components are distributed on separate CDs.

For details on system requirements, including disk space and RAM, see the installation guide for your platform.

For more information specific to jConnect™ for JDBC™, jisql, and Ribo, see the jConnect documentation.

This release bulletin provides the latest information about Adaptive Server and its known problems, as well as documentation updates and clarifications.

NoteAdaptive Server version 12.5 ships with the incorrect version of ins_syn_sql. This is the script that installs the sp_syntax system procedure. You can download the correct version from the Sybase Downloads Web site.

XA-Server and XA-Library

If you use XA-Server™ or XA-Library™, you should migrate to the XA interface that is included with Open Client version 12.5, and which relies on the optional Adaptive Server Enterprise distributed transaction management (DTM) feature. Although XA-Library and XA-Server work with Adaptive Server version 12.5, they are usable only with version 11 of Open Client and will be discontinued. Contact your Sybase sales representative or customer service about obtaining a license for DTM.
