JDBC driver for SQL Server working with Java program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded latest JDBC driver, but when I run my Java program I keep getting an error that the JDBC driver can't be found.

    What is the proper wording of the driver?  I used what the documentation at MSFT site says and is creating the error.

    I'm trying to connect to my SQL database try Java program.

  • Hi JaySQLR,

    Welcome to SQL Server Data Access community forum.

    Per your description, what error message have you got?  Have you installed Java Runtime Environment according to this post?
