I may be asking a stupid question, but
Why the most topics in this newsgroup are related to MySql?
Does someone use MS SQL ?
Or JDBS doesn't work with MS SQL?
Can I use MS SQL, or it is technicaly impossible?
Where can I get JDBC driver to play with MS SQL?
Or it is not worth it, and I shoul go with MySQL ?

There are a number of drivers available to connect to MS SQL - like Jturbo, WebLogic. You can download them for a 30 day trial period.
Check out "List of drivers" in the java.sun jdbc homepage.

Thank you very much ,Jay.
I'll try.
But why it looks like that MS SQL is not that popular for Java related applications ?
Do I have a wrong impression ?
