 developer base can now take advantage of the reliability, ease-of-use and
 small footprint of SQL Anywhere Studio to develop innovative database-powered
 applications," said Mike Paola, senior group product manager at iAnywhere.
 "This announcement highlights iAnywhere's long-standing belief in empowering
 developers to leverage their existing application development skills and
 expertise."
     "We use both SQL Anywhere Studio and Delphi in our retail point-of-sale
 applications, enabling us to develop sophisticated solutions very quickly,"

 good combination and the new dbExpress driver will make the development
 process even easier."
