Testing the sqlanydb module

To test that the Python interface to SQL Anywhere is working correctly first start the demo database included with your SQL Anywhere installation and then create a file named with the following contents:

import sqlanydb
conn = sqlanydb.connect(uid='dba', pwd='sql', eng='demo', dbn='demo' )
curs = conn.cursor()
curs.execute("select 'Hello, world!'")
print "SQL Anywhere says: %s" % curs.fetchone()

Run the test script and ensure that you get the expected output:

> python
SQL Anywhere says: Hello, world!
