This is an odd one.... I've got a Linux machine and I need to connect to a remote SQL Server database. From what I can tell, I'll have to use some type of ODBC bridge to contact the SQL Server, then use the JDBC->ODBC bridge on the Linux machine to talk to the ODBC bridge. That's far too many bridges to have to cross. Does anyone else have a better idea?

Hello, What i feel is, u are a bit confused . It doesnt make any difference where exactly ur database is residing. All u have to do is make a jdbc-odbc call from your program to the server. First odbc doesnt come into picture. When u are establishing a connection to the database You have to specify The IP Address The Port Dsn Name Username Password
For this u can either go for thin Drivers or the drivers supoorted by database.
