Microsoft SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver v1.2 official release

The Microsoft SQL Server JDBC team is proud to announce the general availability of the v1.2 RTW release.  The driver can be found at  In this release we significantly reduced the driver's memory footprint usage especially when handling large clobs and blobs on multiple active connections.  This resulted in performance and scalability improvements, through the use of "responseBuffering=adaptive" connection property.  We also introduced SQL Server SSL encryption support.
