Your current visa will be cancelled without prejudice. It's possible to have different visas stamped on your passport. At one point, I had B, F1 and multiple H1Bs stamped in mine. No problems at all.

I also get this error message when I start creating a connection.

This driver is locked for use with embedded applications.

I got the following from the IBM Information center:

Use the proper DataStoreHelper class to configure data sources for the Connect JDBC driver

If you use the WebSphere Embedded Connect JDBC driver for Microsoft SQL Server, you must use the proper DataStoreHelper class. If you use an incorrect DataStoreHelper class, either of the following exceptions might occur:

How do I set this up in my WSAD environment?

Ok I sort of had a work around for this issue. I extracted the jars and manually put it in my EAR lib folder. I then added these jars in the classpath and then add it in the manifest file using the Java JAR Dependencies. It worked!

Referencing the jars using the Add Variable seems to be not working at runtime. I noticed that when I do this the jars do not go to the manifest file.

Is there another way to solve this? The architect's preference is to not put any jars on the EAR lib folder. Is there a way for WSAD to recognize the SQL Server driver at runtime?

I am using the Websphere Connect JDBC driver for MS SQL 2000. When I try to register this driver using this:


I get this error message:


I've correctly set the CLASSPATH in the Java Build Path of WSAD to point to the required jars. Am i missing something?

Let me add that I was able to establish a connection to the database using the Data View of WSAD.

Form WSAD's onlide help, I found out there are three types of drivers to connect to MS SQL Server: DataDirect SequeLink Driver, Microsoft DataDirect Connect JDBC Driver and WebSphere´┐Ż Connect JDBC Driver.

Which one should we use? Do you have links to any tutorial sites?

This is why I would like to know that in case there is any problem with Company ABC, may I switch my job and join another company of USA. This can happen in 2 formats, first before I get the visa to go to USA and second, after I reach USA, join company ABC, work for a while and then I find that I have better options in other companies.

You can only work for the company the petitioned for H1B. If you want to swith job, the 'other' company should apply for new H1B. You can have as many H1B petitions as you want.

1. Is there any mark like as I got H1B through Company ABC, I must work 3 years here? I didn't find anything in my offer letter like that or may be I skipped.

With a reputable company, nothing will prevent you from resigning. You may find a clause in your job offer which says 'employment-at-will'--- this goes both ways. But again, if you will work for another company, that means you need to apply for another H1B.

2. What are the papers I need to show in Bangladesh USA embassy other than the INS approval letter? Does job offer letter includes?

You need NOA (I-797), job offer and all the other papers you provided when you apply.

Good Luck! Btw, I work in Atlanta and If you have any questions in moving here just let me know.
