SQL Anywhere 12 web edition license question



While compiling my blog in regards to opensearch here on SCN I double checked the licenses for SQL Anywhere 12.

Opensearch experiments: Trying to increase my SCN relevance . . score

In the blog I used what I thought was my SQL Anywhere "web edition" licensed version 12 on a micro instance in the AWS cloud.

Following the FAQ for the web edition SQL Anywhere Web Edition FAQ - Technical: Mobile Enterprise, Database Management iAnywhere - Sybase Inc

How can I get a copy of SQL Anywhere Web Edition?

SQL Anywhere Web Edition is available for download from the web site. A direct link to the download is available here:

The download link points to the "Developer edition".

After checking this I thought I better check my version via Server Licensing utility (dblic)

And it does appear I must have followed the developer edition

dblic /opt/sqlanywhere12/bin32/dbsrv12.lic

SQL Anywhere Server Licensing Utility Version

License read successfully.

Developer Edition



I have now shutdown my version of SQL Anywhere on the AWS instance.

After reading the FAQ I understand that both a developer & web edition license would be required. But no obvious place to get a "web edition" license.


1) is it possible to still get a "web edition" license for SQL Anywhrere 12?
