New MS JDBC Driver for SQL Server 2005

Microsoft says that “In its continued commitment to interoperability, Microsoft will release
and support an updated Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver for SQL
Server 2005.

“The SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver beta download is available
to all SQL Server 2005 users at no additional charge, and provides
access to SQL Server 2005 from any Java application, application
server, or Java-enabled applet.”

“This is a Type 4 JDBC driver that
provides de-facto database connectivity through the standard JDBC
application program interfaces (APIs) available in J2EE (Java2
Enterprise Edition).”

Those using the 2000 JDBC Driver are expected to be pleasantly suprised with the new driver. Amongst other features, it support JDBC 3.0, integrated authentication and offers better performance.

    I have just checked the opencms site. It does have the multilanguage support (at least now). It seems like those developers had reinvented a wheel again (a bit different of course, no doubt, with spikes coloured in blue 🙂 ). That is a problem with many russians (I am russian myself 🙂 ) – we often put aside well-proven solutions because we think we can do better and it usually doesn’t work out. It is something to do with mentality. Well, anyway, i wish AtLeap a success if it is worth it!

    Interoperability, ‘No additional charge’ and Java… words unrelated to Microsoft, all featuring in one news story. 🙂

    Are there any other free/commercial drivers available for SQL Server 2005?
