JDBC-ODBC - Creating DSN for SQL Server 2005
This section describes how to create a DSN that connected to the local SQL Server.
In order to use the JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver, you need to create a DSN (Data Source Name) representing an ODBC connection to a particular database server. This tutorial will show you how to create DSN for SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, assuming that it has been installed on your local system as described in other tutorials in this book.
1. On my Windows 7 system, run Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC).
2. Click the System DSN tab. Then click the Add button.
3. From the ODBC driver list, select SQL Server (SQLSRV32.DLL) and click the Finish button.
4. Now fill in the DSN header information as below and click Next:
Name: SQL_SERVER Description: DSN for the local SQL Server Server: LOCALHOST
5. Select the radio button on "With SQL Server authentication using a login ID and password entered by the user". Also enter in Login ID field: "sa" and in Password field: "HerongYang". Then click Client Configuration.
6. Check and uncheck "Dynamically determine port" and enter "1269" as the Port Number. Then click OK to close the network configuration window.
7. Click Next and continue to finish the rest of settings with default values. Your DSN "SQL_SERVER" is ready now.
