Hi,
I am trying to connect with MSDE using this class:




i get this error :

Got an exception!
[Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC]Unable to connect. Invalid URL.


Could anyone tell me how to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Bitz.

Consult the documentation for your driver for the correct form for your url. I think you are missing the name of the database (catalog/schema/etc) you want to connect to.

Hi Maximilan,
The syntax was ok, the problem was with the TCP/IP connection.It just had to be enabled and things worked fine after that.
Thanks
Bitz
