JDBC Driver API Reference

DownloadDownload JDBC Driver

The Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server provides an API that can be used within Java programming code to connect to and interact with a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Note

For conceptual information about using the JDBC driver, see Overview of the JDBC Driver.

Important

For JDBC 4.1 and 4.2 compliance support, use Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.2 (or higher) for SQL Server. The previous Microsoft JDBC Drivers 4.1 and 4.0 releases do not support new methods introduced with JDBC 4.1 or 4.2.

API details for JDBC 4.1 compliance are not in this section. See JDBC 4.1 Compliance for the JDBC Driver.

API details for JDBC 4.2 compliance are not found in this section. See JDBC 4.2 Compliance for the JDBC Driver.

API details for Bulk Copy, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.2 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Using Bulk Copy with the JDBC Driver.

API details for Always Encrypted, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Always Encrypted API Reference for the JDBC Driver

API details for Using Table-Valued Parameters, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Using Table-Valued Parameters

Microsoft JDBC Drivers 6.0 and 4.2 support compilation with JDK 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0.

Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.1 supports compilation with JDK 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0.

Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 supports compilation with JDK 5.0 and 6.0.
