hello there ,
I have serverlet jdbc application , which communicates with mysql database , now I have to use mssql instead of mysql , my servelets will be on "serverapplication" and mssql database is running on
"serversql" , it means to entirely different pysical server systems ,
before that mysql and servlets were on same server "serverapplication" , and below is how i did,
-- Class.forName("");
-- DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/mydb");
now can anybody guide me that how can i access mssql database which is on different server , and what should i write ,
for "Class.forName(...." and for "DriverMgr.getCon(....",
waiting for urgent reply
