JDBC v1.1 CTP and the Product Feedback Center

When you get down to it Customer feedback is what makes a project like this interesting and worthwhile. This is the first project I have worked in where the Product Feedback Center has made such an important difference and a BIG thank you to those of you that have taken the time to file bugs directly on the JDBC provider: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/default.aspx

I want to make sure that you understand that we take these bugs very seriously. We triage them daily and treat them as the highest priority bugs come release time. Here is a list of customer bugs that we have received since we shipped RTM.

All of these bugs have been fixed in our latest JDBC V1.1 CTP. you can download this CTP by contacting the JDBC project manager directly at shelbyg<at>Microsoft<dot>com.
