jdbc:sqlserver driver

hello:
I am trying to map a SQL server 2008r2:
and this is the convention I found on the net:

jdbc:sqlserver://server:port;DatabaseName=dbname

so I fill in:

jdbc:sqlserver://MyMachine\SQL Instance name:1433; XYZ=?????

The question is this:
DatabaseName=dbname - are not those the same (why would I put dbabasename=dbname)?

Is placing the IP of the machine better than  placing MyMachine\SQL Instance name ?


Thank you.

If you are doing this from Java, you should "Request Attention" and get the Java zones added to your question.  They would be more familiar with the jdbc driver.  I believe that 'DatabaseName' is the name of the parameter and 'dbname' should be the name of your database.

I think you're mixing it up.   I believe you either use jdbc:sqlserver://[serverName[\instanceName]:port OR jdbc:sqlserver://server_ip_or_hostname:port;databaseName=dbname

databaseName is a parameter, and dbname is the value you give it i.e. databaseName=XYZ
