Do i need to add any jar for connecting to ms sql 2008 through my application. Currently it supports connection to 2000 & 2008.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You need to add the jar file that contains the driver; it's available from Microsoft. But maybe you already did that, since you say that SQLServer 2008 is already supported by the application?
