Sybase SQL Anywhere Sybase SQL Anywhere is one of the leading enterprise RDBMS, offered in different editions suitable for a wide range of applications: Web development, OLAP, embedded/mobile applications.

Sybase I was asked to review the interoperability between SQL Anywhere and PHP, its visibility and attractiveness to PHP developers, and the quality of documentation and support. I created a full test suite for the new php_sqlanywhere native driver, submitted patches and comments, tested the product on different platforms (Mac OSX, Windows, Linux). I evaluated the documentation and the support options, as well as some of the most interesting features (Full-text search, Common Table Expressions, Window Functions, the external environment). The result of the analysis was written into a report, which might be openly released as a white paper in the near future.
