Our SQL Server JDBC Driver 3.0 is released recently. If you’re coming to SQL Server from Java, make sure that you’re using our newest JDBC Driver : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a737000d-68d0-4531-b65d-da0f2a735707&displaylang=en

If you don’t know the current SQL Server JDBC Driver version you’re using, please compile my tiny little a few lines java console app below and run on your machine. It will write the SQL Server JDBC Driver version out to the console :


import java.sql.*;

public class getJDBCDriverVersion {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      try {
          Driver d = (Driver)Class.forName(“com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver”).newInstance();       

          System.out.println(“JDBC Driver version is : ” + d.getMajorVersion()  + “.” + d.getMinorVersion());

      }catch (Exception e){



If it’s not showing 3.0, then grab your copy from the download link above and enjoy 🙂
