Dear All,

We are experiencing this situation now. On our database server, we are planning to create a non-default instance of the SQL Server Database.

On our application server, we need to configure a datasource to point to this database, which will be looked up by the application code and used for connectivity.

The information will look something like this.

Datasource Name : java:comp/env/jdbc/mysqlserver.mysite.com
Driver : net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver
Connection URL : jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://mysqlserver.mysite.com:1433

Here, 1433 is the default port to which the default instance of the SQL will be listening to. If we create a non-default instance, the port will change, and the name of the datasource will change too.

In that case, how do we create the datasource for the non-default instance?
How would the URL field look like, provided we have the host:port info.

Requesting you to kindly help me. Thanks in advance for the reply!!

An "instance" in SQL Server terms is a distinct server, not a database. Is it an instance you mean? If it is I think you address it by simply changing the port numebr to the number the named instance is listening on.
