I'm trying to follow Java's JDBC tutorials to write a Java program that can connect to SQL Server 2008. I'm getting lost at the point of making a connection.
The following snippet is from the tutorial:
InitialContext ic = new InitialContext(); DataSource ds = ic.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/myDB"); Connection con = ds.getConnection(); DataSource ds = (DataSource) org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDataSource() ds.setPort(1527); ds.setHost("localhost"); ds.setUser("APP") ds.setPassword("APP"); Connection con = ds.getConnection();
There's no explanation of what comp/env/jdbc/myDB should point to, and I don't know how I should choose a port. Also, the object ds seems to be defined twice.
I'm using the
JSQLDataSource driver, for the record. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
