connecting to MS SQLServer database from within netbeans
Joined: Jul 14, 2007
In NetBeans. So I have the driver setup in the runtime tab. But unfortunately I cannot connect using it. In the "New Database connections" dialog box where you fill in the details you want to connect with I have the following:
The error I get shown when I click on OK is: "unable to add connection,cannot establish a connection to the jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433/pubs using com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver (the port number 1433/pubs is not valid.)"
Note:I can connect from code using the above specs. [ December 07, 2007: Message edited by: Chunnard Singh II ]
