I am trying to connect a web application , Web Help Desk, to an instance of SQL Server 2008 R2 Express and am getting the following error.  


We're sorry, an unexpected error occurred:  

 java.lang.IllegalStateException: _obtainOpenChannel -- com.webobjects.eoaccess.EODatabaseContext com.webobjects.eoaccess.EODatabaseContext@17ad30a: failed to open database channel. Check your connection dictionary, and ensure your database is correctly configured.  


This error appeared after the application created the tables and then tried to connect to it.

I have no java and very little SQL server expierence and am at a standstill.  

Thanks for your help.
