Hello experts<

I try to connect to my data base with the following:

var dbConn = DatabaseConnectionFactory.createDatabaseConnection ('com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver','jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=ngtest;','default','#####');

and ge the error:

Wrapped java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=ngtest

REsearching a bit tells me to set the path correctly in the class file, but are not sure how to do that.  Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

you set a wrong zone : javascript.
should be : java

which tools are you using to compile your code ?
You may specify the path to the ms sql jdbc driver (sqljdbc.jar) with javac with the option : -classpath

Generaly under dev tools you specify the classpath (not only for a jdbc driver) by project.
For your applications running on the system you set the classpath as environment variable

more info here for example :
http://download-llnw.oracle.com/javase/1.3/docs/tooldocs/win32/classpath.html

if you need more help you can ask a moderator to change the zone... hmmm... I do it for you now :)

add this line before creating db connection
Class.forName("com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver");

you need to include the jar file that have com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver class in your classpath,
use this tutorial as reference for jdbc
