Trying to connect to a SQL Server database from our internal web portal.
This is what I'm getting:
An error occurred at line: 1,694 in the jsp file: /accountDetail.jsp
DriverManager cannot be resolved
1691: Class.forName("com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver");
1692:
1693: String connectionUrl = "jdbc:sqlserver://HNCIISDEV;" + "databaseName=WebPortal;user=" + login + ";password=" + pass;
1694: con = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionUrl);
1695: }
1696: catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfex)
1697: {

Any ideas what my developer is missing?

IS your connection string correct. In most of the cases connection string seems to be incorrect.

For connection string please refer - https://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server/

It looks like your environment does not have the JDBC driver for SQL Server installed. Can you please try installing it? https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt484311(v=sql.110).aspx
