I have a requirement in my project where I am supposed to execute SQL scripts on Unix server and the SQL server is hosted on a different windows M/C. We are looking for a suitable bridge / driver that can be installed on Unix so that the scripts can be executed.
Also, Is it possible to install the SQL client on Unix server ?
You still did not say what database you are using. When you type "SQL server", do you mean the product called Microsoft SQL Server? If so, there is a type-4 JDBC driver that runs just fine on Linux. As far as command line tools go, I don't know of any Linux command line tools that work with SQL Server (though doing a search for "SQL Server" in your distro's package manager might bring something up). But once you have the JDBC driver, then just about any Java-based tools should let you make those queries.
