JDBC-ODBC - Connecting to SQL Server 2005

This section describes how to connect to a SQL Server 2005 through DSN with JDBC-ODBC Bridge.

After I have my SQL Server configured for TCP/IP connection, and have created a DSN, SQL_SERVER, representing the SQL Server, I can try to connect my Java program to my SQL Server with JDBC-ODBC Bridge using the DriverManager.getConnection() in two ways:


   // properties contains "user" and "password"

Here is my sample program showing you how to connect to the SQL Server with JDBC-ODBC Bridge:

/* OdbcSqlServerConnection.java
 * Copyright (c) HerongYang.com. All Rights Reserved.
import java.sql.*;
public class OdbcSqlServerConnection {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    Connection con = null;
    try {
      Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver") ;

// Connect with a full url string
      con = DriverManager.getConnection(
      System.out.println("First connection ok.");

// Connect with a url string and properties
      java.util.Properties prop = new java.util.Properties();
      prop.put("user", "sa");
      prop.put("password", "HerongYang");
      con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:SQL_SERVER",
      System.out.println("Second connection ok.");

    } catch (Exception e) {
      System.err.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());

The output confirms that both connection methods worked correctly:

herong> javac OdbcSqlServerConnection.java

herong> java OdbcSqlServerConnection
First connection ok.
Second connection ok.
