Hi Ranchers, I have a Java application, whose database connection is through ODBC to SQL server. But this project is going to be integrated with another project; that project is using ADO connection to SQL server 7.0. May I know if Java application can use ADO connection as well? then I don't have much to change. Thank you so much
Well the ADO connection is just a connection to the Database, that's what JDBC is for, and you can use the JDBC-ODBC Bridge if you want to keep use the same DSN on the users machine. I am assuming VB or VB like code for the other App using the ADO Connection. There is also JIntegra which is a COM to Java bridge, which would allow you to use it. But again I suggest sticking with JDBC to connect to your SQL Server. But also note, I am not an expert in this subject, I just know ADO and I know JDBC, I just never heard of using Java and ADO together, its like putting Yugo car parts into a Ferrari. Mark
lydia, you can use ADO with Java using third party drivers. i used infoZoom's ADO driver and got quite good results in some cases. here's the link where you can download a trial copy: http://www.infozoom.de/ie/javaado.html good luck!
