Q.     Where can I get a JDBC driver for SQL Server?  Do Microsoft write one?  
Which is the best one?

A. Microsoft don't supply one.  You can get 3rd party ones from a variety of
vendors and some free open-source ones as well.  

Which is the best one?  As I don't use any of them I can't comment from
personal experience.  The two most commonly used seem to be WebLogic and
OpenLink - and feedback on them seems good.

The full list that I know of are :-

1.  WebLogic : http://weblogic.beasys.com and www.weblogic.com.  (type 2, 3 or
4.  SQL 6.5 and 7.0).  Download type-4 driver direct from

2.  http:\\www.inetsoftware.de.  JDBC Type 4 drivers for the Microsoft
SQLServer 6.5 and 7.0.  JDBC 1.22 driver to use with JDK 1.1x and a JDBC 2.0
driver (i-net Sprinta) to use with Java 2 (JKD 1.2x).

JDBC 1.22 : http://www.inetsoftware.de/English/produkte/jdbctreiber/Default.htm
JDBC 2.0  : http://www.inetsoftware.de/English/produkte/jdbc2/Default.htm.

3.  www.openlinksw.com (www.openlinksw.co.uk)

4.  http://www.easysoft.com / http://beta.easysoft.com.  JDBC/ODBC bridge.

5.  ftp://freetds.internetcds.com/pub/freetds_jdbc.  Type 4 open-source driver
that is designed to work with SQLServer and Sybase

1. PROGRESS<->JDBDC : DDL question


I'm trying to CREATE, DROP, ALTER tables from within my Java app
through  jdbc
I'm using the Intersolv JDBCTest Tool Version 1.04, the jdbc Connection
is through OpenLink

This is what I'm getting.


execute Failed:
 Message: [OpenLink][ODBC][Progress Server]** The _Index record has
NO-LOCK status. DELETE not allowed. (335)
 Vendor: 335
 State:  S1000

execute Failed:
 Message: [OpenLink][ODBC][Progress Server]** _Field record has NO-LOCK
status, update to field not allowed. (396)
 Vendor: 396
 State:  S1000

Obviously there is a problem with a LOCK status
The solution however is not obvious to me (allthough probably simple,
but I admit I'm a bit dense at times :) )

All help greatly appreciated.
