Data Access has been discontinued. Please refer to this page for more information.


This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

To use Telerik Data Access with the SQL Anywhere database server you need the following components to be installed and configured:

Integrated security is not supported for SQL Anywhere. The default user name and password are "DBA" and "sql". When you connect to a SQL Anywhere database, you need either to specify these values or to use another user name or password; the user must exist in the database then. The server name should be the service name of the started server. The database name is the logical database name, not the database path.

Type Mapping

The Type Mapping topic shows the default mapping from .NET types to SQL Anywhere specific types.
