Thread: sql server 2008

  1. #1

    Default sql server 2008

    jtds doesn't work with sql server 2008 apparently (there doesn't seem to be anything on their web site about it). microsoft have their own type 4 driver. What's required to use that from Kettle? Is this an end-user thing or a dev thing? I don't seem to be able to add a new driver to a database through the connections dialog.

    You can drop the MS driver in libext and use the Generic connection in the dialog.

    thanks that works fine. For clarity, it looks like jtds DOES work with sql server 2008 at least to some extent. I had something else wrong with my setup. However, jtds doesn't currently "support" 2008.
