I want to make some database related projects in Eclipse framework but i don't know how to connect it with the database.
I searched a lot on google but everywhere i saw mysql instead of sql server.
Please guide me step by step as i am totally dumb about this connection.However i have practiced some earlier with microsoft access but have not touched sql server.
please guide me step by step..

You will need to find the database driver for SQL Server....

And then you'll need to know how to use it
... you can check the FAQ on that page and post in the JDBC forum here if you need help.

Microsoft is a little silly because they like to try to stay proprietary... that's probably why you didn't find much doing a search.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

What wasn't helpful about Janeice's link?

Also, do you need Oracle or SQL server? The connection string and driver are different. See Oracle's FAQ.

When you say you can't find the "answers", what specifically are you stuck on?
