Michael already addressed Microsoft SQL server.
SQL Anywhere doesn't speak Sybase's internal protocol (TDS)
directly, but there's a gateway which translates the protocol
to SQL Anywhere speak. From my former life in the Sybase JDBC
group I seem to remember that this gateway is not included
in free evaluation copies, but has to be ordered from Powersoft.
This may have changed in the meantime. Take a look at
The SQL Anywhere situation should be address somewhere around
there, probably in the FAQ
