The ASE 12.5 Developer's Edition is now available for download from
This is a full-featured version with (AFAIK) all the optional features
(think Java) turned on. It is limited to 25 user connections, a single
engine, and no parallelism.
But it's free (for development, obviously!), and doesn't expire.
It is also for kernel 2.4.x, supports async IO, large files, etc.
