Hello,
I am facing a lot of problem while doing some programming on threads. Whenever I have to get connected with Database I only have an option of using JDBC-ODBC driver, which everybody seems cursing as it is not fit for multi-requests or production.
I am using :
1. Windows 2000 Server
2. MS Sql 2000
3. JRUN 3.1 for supporting JSP and Servlets.

But question are:
1. what professionals use for stand alone application?
2. Is there some commercial drivers (at cost) available for stand alone applications? which is best of them?
3. Is there some freeware drivers too available?

Any comments.
regards,
Arun

SQL Server drivers. Oi, oi...
Freeware: I have tried FreeTDS and ThinWeb FreeTDS. My experience with these is not good at all, unfortunately.
Recently Microsoft has come up with a driver derived from the Merant one; I have no experience with it. It is not J2EE certified.
Of the paid-for drivers I tried, I really liked JSQLConnect. It didn't give me any problems, is feature-rich including support for statement and connection pooling and XA, is J2EE certified and reasonably priced. You can download a trial version, which after 30 days downgrades to the free version with a 1 connection limit :roll: oh well, they'll have to make a living too I suppose.
Just my experience. YMMV.

It's free for 1 month or so... Nice thing...
I've used it exactly the combination u mentioned..
