Overview of the JDBC Driver

The Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server is a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) 4.0 compliant driver that provides robust data access to Microsoft SQL Server databases. The JDBC driver can access many of the features introduced in SQL Server 2005, including database mirroring; the xml, user-defined, and large-value data types; and it supports the new "snapshot" transaction isolation. In addition, the JDBC driver also supports the use of integrated authentication.

You can download the Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server from Microsoft Download Center or from a SQL Server 2012 feature pack web page.

The topics in this section provide a general overview of the JDBC driver, including the system requirements needed to use it, how it can be used, and where you can go for more information.
