jdbc:sqlserver driver  "Request Attention"

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're connecting to the default instance (on port 1433), and it appears that you are, I suspect you can omit the "SQL Instance Name:1433" segment of your connection string. You'll probably just need something like:

jdbc:sqlserver://MyMachine;DatabaseName=SomeDbOnYourServerThatYoureAccessing

Open in new window


The "DatabaseName" identifier is literal - what you'll want to change is the value after it, which tells the JDBC driver which database you'll be accessing. You can always switch database context after you connect, or access data from another database you have rights to, but it just tells you where you're starting.

I'd actually favor using the server's DNS name ("MyMachine" above) instead of the IP address - it makes it easier if you have to change the IP address of the server later.

so do you mean it should be like this?

jdbc:sqlserver://MyMachine;XYZdb
 
or mayby:

jdbc:sqlserver://Chats101;AdventureWorks

or maybe:

jdbc:sqlserver://192.168.1.64;AdventureWorks


are any of those wrong?

Do any of those work?

I've not used jdbc to connect before, but I'd expect it to be like this (for clarify, only the italic text should be edited by you - everything else should stay the same):

jdbc:sqlserver://MyMachine;DatabaseName=AdventureWorks

The "DatabaseName" identified should be in your string, and you provide the database name to the right of the = sign, so you'll only change the IP (if needed) and replace "AdventureWorks" with the name of your database.
