Hai, i am tried to use the Sql Server with Java and Tomcat 5.0 Application Server.
I am using the JDBC Driver for Java connecting with SQL Server. I am using SQL Server 2005.
I have used the following code for java database connectivity with SQL Server.

import java.sql.*;
public class Test {
public static void main(String[] args)
//load the driver class
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://; DatabaseName=timetracking ");
catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfe)
catch (SQLException sqle)

The above code was compiled successfully, but it's not running. The below error was raised. I have coped and paste it the JDBC Driver class for SQL Server 2005(sqljdbc.jar) to the WEB-INF/lib folder.


I don't know what i am doing with wrong. If anybody know, how to solve this, kindly post me.

We're pleased to have you here with us here at JavaRanch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character.
