SQL Server 2008 feature support survey

Since the release of SQL Server 2008, we have heard from customers looking for a JDBC driver that supports SQL Server 2008.  I would like to use this post to ask you, our customers, which features of SQL Server 2008 do you need supported through the JDBC driver.  We want to make sure we are delivering features which adds the most value to our customers and your feedback will help us help you.

Here are some features to get things started:

  • Date/Time/Datetime2/DatetimeOffset data type
  • Sparse Columns
  • Table-Value Parameters
  • T-SQL MERGE command
  • Filestream data type
  • Spatial data type
  • HierarchyID data type

Please add any you don't see on the list.  If there are multiple features you need, please rank them in order of priority.
