Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver Publisher's description
A Type 4 JDBC driver that provides database connectivity
Microsoft has released a preview of the upcoming Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver. The SQL Server JDBC Driver 3.0 CTP download is available to all SQL Server users at no additional charge, and provides access to SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2008 from any Java application, application server, or Java-enabled applet.
Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver is a Type 4 JDBC driver that provides database connectivity through the standard JDBC application program interfaces (APIs) available in Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5.
This technology preview of the JDBC Driver now supports features that were added in SQL Server 2008. It has been tested against all major application servers including BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, and JBoss.
