jdbc database connection to the sql server is created with dynamic ports

hi,

Need to create jdbc connection to sql server 2008,The problem is the port is dynamic.
is there any way in which database connection to the server is created with dynamic ports or in simple words without providing the port no.

ex.
Driver = com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
URL =jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:XXXXXXXXX;DatabaseName=test;

XXXX -> This can be any port i.e 1433,1435 etc

Hi!

If you allow named connections you can connect to the instance using
jdbc:sqlserver://localhost;instanceName=instance1;integratedSecurity=true;<more properties as required>;

If the port is dynamic, I think you either need a way to pass that value to the Java client (so it can be entered in the connection string) or you'd need to use some port mapping logic (e.g. in a firewall) to handle the routing.

If you went with the port mapping approach, then the client would always connect to a fixed port number, but the router would map that to the dynamic port.  But doing that would require a pretty skilled network guy to set that up.
