Read the FAQ.

Why do I get a "java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver" when trying to get a connection?
The "No suitable driver" exception is thrown by the DriverManager when none of the registered Driver implementations recognizes the supplied URL. This means that you either did not register jTDS with the DriverManager (by doing a Class.forName("net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver") first) or you mistyped the URL (e.g. "jbdc:jtds:..." instead of "jdbc:jtds:...").
