As far as I know, SQL Server, being a MS product, does not supply a direct JDBC driver, so you'd have to use the jdbc-odbc bridge driver which Sun (I think) provides. Search the web for 'jdbc odbc bridge', or maybe someone else will answer you more directly.

Hi I have used MSSQL Driver from MS sometime back when it was just released first in Beta version. They do have one for JDBC. here you go Try to see if that works. the file is called mssqlserver.tar I guess. Regards Maulin
Microsoft has a JDBC driver that is supposed to work with both Unix and Windows. I am not sure if it is free My company uses an old jdbc driver called http://www.inetsoftware.de/. We use it to call only one small stored procedure. We do not own the SQL Server database, in our case... U can also find other commerical jdbc drivers as well for SQL Server, though Surprisingly
Loveen, Download the MS SQL 2000 Server JDBC Driver from here. As it is a Microsoft product, it "installs" the files and creates shortcuts to the documentation. You will need to read it's documentation to learn how to construct the connection URL and what Driver package to use. Next, go through the JDBC Tutorial on suns site. When you have specific questions about the code you are working on (problems, errors, exceptions, etc) give us a shout.
