I have never accessed a database from my Java application before. Now, I am learning MS SQL server 2000. How can I access the data stored in SQL server throw my Java application?

- you need to download some JDBC drivers for SQL Server 2000
- run the setup.exe program which installs the drivers
the setup program installs 3 jars to the following location:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib\
- include these jars in your classpath
- try some code
- of course you need to fill in some blanks such as:
- servername
- db name
- user/password
- table details
I agree. Here's the link:
