Hello All
I have a problem while accessing Microsoft SQL server 2005. I get this error messages while accessing the database,"The incoming tabular data stream (TDS) remote procedure call (RPC) protocol stream is incorrect. Parameter 1 (""): Data type 0x38 is unknown."

The solutions mentioned above post was to change




I did the above change but still run into with same error. My database is deployed on MS SQL server 2005. I am using sqljdbc.jar file for my driver.

Hi All
I got this one (after wasting lot of time on my silliness). In my JBOSS datasource file, I had mentioned connection string starting with "jdbc:sqlserver:". Where as at one the places in my application the connection string was for a different driver settings, starting with "jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver:...".

Because this mis-match, JBOSS had booted up with correct driver, but my application was using a different one and I ended with problems.

Thanks all.

As a side note, class-path in a J2EE environment is extremely non-trivial. If you know what I mean by that statement you've probably had the misfortune of having to navigate it.
If you settle for what they are giving you, you deserve what you get. Fight for this tiny ad!
