I am using DatabaseMetaData.getImportedKeys() to get the foreign keys of a table. I am using sybase and the jdbc driver provided by it. My problem is this method is not returning the foreign keys for some tables. But it is working fine if I change the driver to odbc driver and use the jdbc-odbc bridge.What could be the reason for these differences? I think this is the best way to get the foreign keys. Can anyone help me out of this??
Thanx in advance,

I agree. Here's the link:
