This month we'll do a bit of hands-on training on the warehouse solution
provided by Sybase, so find an installation CD of this product immediately.
Since Sybase doesn't offer an evaluation version, call your sales rep for a
The good news is, if you're already familiar with Sybase Adaptive Server
Anywhere, you won't have any major problems using Sybase ASIQ. Sybase decided
to use the same code base for ASIQ and Adaptive Server Anywhere (the ASA
pieces used are the catalog, language parser, and connectivity), with
additional workload-optimized data stores (the ASIQ pieces include the data
store and the query engine). This means these products share a common command
syntax and user interface (ISQL and Sybase Central Java Edition). To connect
to your data warehouse use either ODBC, JDBC, or the Sybase Open Client (by
using the included open server technology).
What's a Web site without a search engine? If you want your Web site or your
company Web site to be cutting edge, this article shows you how.
Jakarta Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine
written entirely in Java. It's a technology suitable for nearly any
application that requires a full-text search, especially cross-platform. As
Sybase EAServer professionals know, we can bring the openness of Java to
other IDEs, and our favorite one is (without discussion) PowerBuilder.
Maybe we should come back to this cutting-edge thing. We all want to be
smart, but wh... (more)
The DropDownDataWindow (DDDW) edit style is one of PowerBuilder's outstanding
features. Yes, I know there are a lot of new and exciting capabilities in the
upcoming release of PowerBuilder, but in this article I'll try to solve some
of the current problems with the existing features that are popping up in
nearly every project I've seen.
Here I'll focus on DropDownDataWindows, including:
How to get started with DDDWs Filtering DDDWs without losing the display
value in other rows Catching the collapsing of a DDDW Trapping the cursor
keys in a DDDW Autocomplete DDDW values

Okay, I know you're already familiar with the PowerBuilder IDE. Yes, you're
one of those people who knows where to find the system tree and how to turn
And you already know what the clip window is for (if you don't, look at it,
it's a pretty cool feature - we used it in our 7-year-old application to
document who made changes or bug fixes). No, that's not what I'll be talking
about today. I want to discuss the internals of the IDE, as it has improved a
lot since PowerBuilder 7.
Why should we take a closer look at the IDE? It works great, we like it, so
Over the past few years, there have been a number of titles released on the
Sybase enterprise database management system. Administrator's Guide to Sybase
ASE 12.5, released late last year, was widely adopted by consultants, DBAs,
and administrators of Sybase ASE.
Sybase ASE 12.5 High Availability, released in early 2002, is especially
appropriate for those whose businesses demand 24x7 availability of data and
applications. The third title in this series, Sybase ASE 12.5 Performance and
Tuning, is the one we'll take a closer look at this month. It promises to be
just as valuable ... (more)
