You will get a not very good free one from Microsoft, a resonable opensource one called jTDS and a very good Commercial one from DataDirect.

One interesting point: The JDBC driver shipped by Microsoft is actually an OEM version of the Datadirect JDBC driver:

Datadirect is probably the best choice for specialist support, etc ...
