Is there any other way to connect to an SQL database other than JDBC-ODBC.
If so please tell me how to do it.

If you're using SQL Server, theres also the new Microsoft drivers which are supposedly greatly improved.
If you are running in a production environment, I wouldn't recommend using the JDBC-ODBC driver - I'd always use a type 4 driver if possible.

You can use jTDS
driver which is an open source or you also have an option of downloading a type 4 driver from Microsoft's Site for MS-SQL Server from this URL given below.It is only for SQL Server 2000 so if you are using it you can go gor
( You have not specified the version of sql server you are using)
Also there is also a jdbc driver aveConnect 3.1 available for MS-SQL versions 6.5,7.0,SQL Server 2000 but it is not free of cost.It is available on 30 days trial basis.
