I have a java project loaded into IntelliJ IDEA. The code requires JDBC and so I downloaded and unzipped the sqljdbc_6.4.0.0_enu file into the recommended directory, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.4 for SQL Server". This creates the jar files:

  • mssql-jdbc-6.4.0.jre7.jar
  • mssql-jdbc-6.4.0.jre8.jar
  • mssql-jdbc-6.4.0.jre9.jar

  • in the directory, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.4 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_6.4\enu". And so, now, how do I make use of all this in my project in IntelliJ IDEA? And if I later put all my java code into Git Hub, how can I ensure that another user will have code that will compile and link? Will I have to include the .jar file in Git Hub somehow?

    You may have to download and install the GitHub Desktop which can be found here https://desktop.github.com/ and/or the official Git client found here https://git-scm.com/download/.
    Once you get either/both of those setup and connecting to your GitHub repositories. You may need to configure Two Factor authentication or something along those lines.
    After all of that try IntelliJ and GitHub once again, however you may want to start with a fresh project and choose VCS -> Import into Version Control -> Share On GitHub from the menus.

    Teaming up with coworkers helped lead to the solution. From the Welcome window, there is the option to clone a repository. The default URL options that are populated and presented in a drop down list have the wrong format for a URL. They each start with "git@github.com..." which is not correct.

    I put the proper URL address to our repository on github.com in this field, and soon everything fell into place
    I am able to log onto GitHub on the internet and I have permissions to see the project (I am even able to download it in zip file format). But somehow I am unable to make the connection to GitHub through the IDE of Intellij IDEA.

    I have set up the connection -- properly, apparently -- using the "Settings" dialog in the IDE on the "GetHub" option under "Version Control", because when I click on the "Test" button, there is a pop up message that says "Connection successful"

    I followed the steps on this website:
    Java Intellj with GitHub
    ... for the most part. The only reason I did not follow the final steps to the letter was because I already had a project open and I had to close the IDE and reopen it because of this.

    Now, in the dialog that comes up at the beginning when you restart Intellij IDEA with the title "Welcome to IntelliJ IDEA", I am prompted with "Check out from Version Control" but when I try to connect, nothing happens.  Then, when I click on the "Events" prompt, it comes up saying:

       Clone Failed
       Could not read from remote repository.
