Java prepared Document connection

How would I change the code below to connect to a SQL Server database on my intranet?

  public static Connection getConnection() throws Exception {
    String driver = "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver";
    String url = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:databaseName";
    String username = "name";
    String password = "password";
    Class.forName(driver);
    Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
    return conn;
  }

CEHJ...
I'm struggling here.
I've tried to implement the linked example like this
	  public static Connection getConnection() throws Exception {
		    String driver = "com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver";
		    String url = "jdbc:sqlserver://myserver;databaseName=[Assignment control system_be]";
		    String username = "WebServices";
		    String password = "password";
		    Class.forName(driver);
		    Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
		    return conn;
		  }

Open in new window


But its saying "cannot find....and erroring on and on..."  on the com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver line

The sql server driver jar is not in your classpath
CEHJ,
  Ok...I recognize the vowels and consonets.

I copied my jar file into the
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin>  directory.

I downloaded the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_4.0\enu files.

What do I copy into the Java directory?
sqljdbc.jar or sqljdbc4.jar?
And what else needs to be done?
I downloaded the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_4.0\enu files.

So that's where the jars are? You can tell Microsoft people don't work at the command line much can't you? ;)

Can you please paste in your previous command line (don't attach an image) and i'll give you the correct command?
CEHJ

Well...not in about 20 years anyway.
Went from HP2000 Data General
to ColdFusion and Microsoft for a while
:-)


Anyway...my command
From this directory      C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin

This is my command
java -cp m5.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v1.ScreenPop  https://myurl.com 9999999999 12345

I'm not talking about you - i'm talking about them ;) No Unix pro would ever create a directory with such a ludicrous name

Try

java -cp 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_4.0\enu files\*;m5.jar' org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v1.ScreenPop 

Open in new window

(assuming the jars are in that 'enu files' directory)
CEHJ
I made sure that I copied in the M5 jar file and its supporting files

I executed your code from this directory
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin>

But I'm getting Error: Could not find or load main class Files

CEHJ,
 Sorry for the late getback.
Thanks
:)
CEHJ,
 By the way...I'm fairly competent in VB.Net but was floundering my way through Java
You'll get used to it ;)
