How do I get a download for the SQL Anywhere Developer Edition?   I downloaded PB 2017 R3 Ultimate and it appears I do not have SQL Anywhere on my system.  Thanks.

Thanks Chris and Armeen.  For benefit of others, I went back to my PB 12.6 install and got it from there.  The problem with the SAP approach for current version of SQL Anywhere is from what I can see, they do not have a developer edition available.  I had previously followed the link Chris provided and downloaded the trial version of SQL Anywhere.  However, my trial expired and I could no longer get to the example applications which is how we are trying to learn the new features to decide if we go down that path.  If SAP does not plan on having a true developer edition of SQL Anywhere which does not expire, probably need to seriously consider moving all the Appeon example applications to PostGreSQL so we can trust them to be there when the time comes to need them.   Using an open source DB for example applications might allow for you to have more flexibility going forward.  I know you had a session on it at elevate.  You have plenty of items to be working on so like all of us, not sure where that falls.   For now.. community... find your old version of PB and get it from there.

My own comment. New examples DB for PB Ultimate and PowerServer look to require SQL Anywhere 16. Following Chris link to SAP and enter your registration information and there is a SQL Anywhere 16 Developer edition download with a license key provided. It will get you what you need... I think. Do not use the Anywhere 17 trial. Not there yet but have other real work I need to get back to. Hope it helps others get going.

I believe that when you download the trial edition of SQL Anywhere it requires you to register. They will then send you a free developer license to enter into the software. This procedure makes sure they have your name and email address so they can contact you later to buy copies. I was looking and there is an edition for $195 that runs on the client pc.

You need to download from SAP.  That is still an SAP product and therefore not included with PB 2017 and newer.
