Installing and Configuring the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver

Microsoft does not allow the redistribution of the JDBC driver for the Structured Query Language (SQL) server by other vendors, such as Oracle. So, you need to download it from the Microsoft website, and install it into the PS_HOME\class directory.

To load and configure the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver:

  1. Download the Microsoft SQL Server Driver for JDBC from Microsoft.

    Note: These drivers are not used by Tuxedo or the web server, so you can ignore any comments on this site about supported versions of various web servers.

  2. Save the program to disk in c:\temp or desktop.

  3. Double-click the sqljdbc_<version>_enu.exe file.

  4. Accept all the defaults.

    The JDBC driver files are installed in C:\program files\microsoft SQL server <ver> JDBC Driver\lib.

  5. Copy these files to PS_HOME\class:

    • For Microsoft SQL Server 2005 1.0/1.1/1.2 JDBC drivers copy sqljdbc.jar.

    • For Microsoft SQL Server 2008 2.0/3.0 JDBC drivers copy sqljdbc.jar and sqljdbc4.jar.
