I’m not very suprised by it, Microsoft has a long history of creating new ways of doing things (think ODBC, OLE-DB, ADO, LINQ, etc, etc) and then dropping them. Bad news is that many developers have to continously rewrite their software to Microsofts ever changing mind. With Servoy you always connect the same way to databases and it’s ready for the future!

Today Sybase announced iAnywhere 11 with some interesting new features, perhaps the best one is the full text search and the free web version (as noted in the post below).
Once the Mac version becomes available we’ll run it through our tests and start bundling it ASAP with Servoy which currently ships with iAnywhere 10.
iAnywhere today announced a free version of there new database (version 11) for web applications. For Servoy developers this means that if your iAnywhere database also has to be accessed by PHP/JSP/other web-tech you don’t have to purchase a separate license anymore. Not all details of the license terms are known yet as the news is hot off the press so watch this space as further details become available.
