This is pretty well documented, so I won't go into details. Basically you have a couple of choices, depending on the platform that your application is hosted on.
If you are running on a Windows platform:
1) Create a system DSN pointed at the SQL Server instance and target database.
2) Use the jdbcdbc bridge that comes with your J2SDK.
Or, download a JDBC driver for SQL Server (you can get this from a variety of sources -- I got one from Microsoft), and use that to access the SQL Server via TCP/IP. This is a relatively platform-independent method (preferred).
I don't know about the relative performance of these two approaches, but I would guess that the latter is more efficient.
I agree. Here's the link:
