The driver has been enhanced to include timestamp in the Spy and JDBC packet logs by default. If required, you can disable the timestamp logging by specifying the following at connection: For Spy logs, set spyAttributes=(log=(file)Spy.log;timestamp=no)
and for JDBC packet logs, set ddtdbg.ProtocolTraceShowTime=false.
Interactive SQL for JDBC (JDBCISQL) is now installed with the product. JDBCISQL is a command-line interface that supports connecting your driver to a data source, executing SQL statements and retrieving results in a terminal. This tool provides a
method to quickly test your drivers in an environment that does not support GUIs.*
The CryptoProtocolVersion connection property has been added to the driver. This property can be used to avoid vulnerabilities associated with SSLv3 and SSLv2, including the POODLE vulnerability.
Support for result set holdability has been added to the driver.
The driver has been enhanced to support Sybase Extended Password Encryption, which uses the asymmetrical key type, instead of the symmetrical key type. This provides stronger password encryption for the secure transmission of public key passwords
Java SE 7 has reached the end of its product life cycle and will no longer receive generally available security updates. As a result, the drivers will no longer support JVMs that are version Java SE 7 or earlier. Support for distributed versions of
Java SE 7 and earlier will also end, including IBM SDK (Java Edition).*
Added the RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean connection property. Note that the driver no longer registers the Statement Pool Monitor as a JMX MBean by default. You must set RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean to true to register the Statement
Pool Monitor and manage statement pooling with standard JMX API calls.*
Certified with SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise 15.7
Enhanced to throw warning when EnableBulkLoad fails
Enhanced AuthenticationMethod connection property to allow for the driver to send a user ID in clear text and an encrypted password to the server for authentication.
