B.5. Microsoft SQL Server

To evaluate those drivers, you can use a simple JSP page to query the pubs database shipped with Microsoft SQL Server.
Move the WAR archive located in files/mssql-test.zip to the /deploy, start the server, and navigate your web browser to http://localhost:8080/test/test.jsp.

Example B.11. Local-TX Datasource Using DataDirect Driver

    <driver-class>com.ddtek.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver</driver-class>
    <user-name>sa</user-name>
    <password>sa</password>
    
    <!-- corresponding type-mapping in the standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml (optional) -->
    <metadata>
      <type-mapping>MS SQLSERVER2000</type-mapping>
    </metadata>
  </local-tx-datasource>
