Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 3.0 is released :)

Our SQL Server JDBC Driver 3.0 is released recently. If you're coming to SQL Server from Java, make sure that you're using our newest JDBC Driver :

If you don't know the current SQL Server JDBC Driver version you're using, please compile my tiny little a few lines java console app below and run on your machine. It will write the SQL Server JDBC Driver version out to the console :


import java.sql.*;

public class getJDBCDriverVersion {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      try {
          Driver d = (Driver)Class.forName("").newInstance();       

          System.out.println("JDBC Driver version is : " + d.getMajorVersion()  + "." + d.getMinorVersion());

      }catch (Exception e){



If it's not showing 3.0, then grab your copy from the download link above and enjoy :)
