I am looking at what would be involved with migrating one of our systems to
the latest version (12.?). We have several C programs that run under the
VAX VMS operating system currently. They contain DBLibrary calls to
interface to the database that runs on a Unix server. I was curious what
type of changes to expect (if any) on the VMS client interface to the
database. I have found the Sybase ASE "Changes that may affect existing
applications" in the "Whats New" section of the online docs. Any
suggestions as to where to look for additional information of this type?
Thanks for your help, Amy

If these applications can run under a test setup, then there should
be no problem setting up a test ASE 12 server, loading your dumps
into it and testing it. Provided you don't make any fundamental changes
to the tables these applications access, DB-Lib calls should still
work.
