Maybe I misunderstand. Are you trying to use RDi Database Perspective
to connect to SQL Server 2008? If yes, then you need to check the Java
version on your PC, not on IBM i. And specifically, you need to check
the Java version that RDi is using.

sqljdbc4.jar requires Java 1.6 or higher, use sqljdbc.jar if on Java 1.5 or lower.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Database Development Connections for SQL Server 2008 (RDi

I've imported the latest SQL server driver definitions and the latest jTDS drive definitions. I can connect and view tables in a SQL server 2005 database using the 'Other Driver' in the driver properties which has jtds-1.3.1.jar in the JAR List. And the connection string is:


When connecting to a SQL server 2008 database I can't view the tables under the Database Connections in the Data Source Explore but it does query tables within that database.

Also when trying to use any of the SQL Server Driver Definitions that linked to sqljdbc4.jar , I can't get those to work.

Does anyone have a working connection string example connection SQL Server
2008 ?
