Does anyone know if WebSphere is compatable with SQL server? The only documentation I could find was that WebSphere is compatable with Oracle, Sybase and DB2.
I am also looking to chat with anyone that has internalization experience.
If you have an answer could you please give me a link to find this information?

This page:
Lists all of the supported Platforms, databases and drivers for WebSphere. As you can see, we do support MS SQL Server 2000, but only when using the Merant driver.

Yes, I asked this question before.
You may try the merant driver which comes along with WAS4.
You can also try using other jdbcdriver and check the documentation how to set up the datasource properties.
Right now it's difficult for me to find detail information on connectting to SQLServer in WAS documentation.
you'd better use a IDE, such as WSAD. It's very convenient especially for Websphere. But I don't like the editor(JSP) very much. It's hard for me to notice which line is HTML, which line is java code.
