Providing Feedback on the Microsoft JDBC Driver


Thanks to everyone who was the the first Irish Java Developers Conferance (http://ijtc.firstport.ie). Hopefully there will be a repeat performance next year. Many people were surprised to see Microsoft at the event, I guess this is a sign of the times with software becoming more cross platform. Most customers I deal with tend to have a little bit of all technologies and the real challenge is getting them to play nice togethor.


To report a bug in Microosft JDBC driver you can log on to http://connect.microsoft.com. Any feedback here automatically gets filled as a bug in Team Foundation Server and is reviewed (triaged) at the next review (sometimes called war meeting). Contrary to popular belief it does not get made into a paper plane and filed into the bin!


There also a forum to get questions answered  and discuss with peers, the product team listens in and can help answer questions too.

Finally if you have any feedback of suggested improvements, you can post suggestions on the new JDBC blog site:

    Excellent talk at the IJTC Bob,

    I might need to get back to you about how to do Query notification using JDBC connected to a MSSQL database!

  2. MSDN Archive says:

    No Query Notification is a big shame for using SQL Server on the Java Platform. Data caching products could really leverage this to improve the stale data problem.

    There is a nasty hack that involves using dot.net to add the subscription – which Java can call via sqlclr, and then using using plain old sql statements to query the notification events. The JDBC application would ned to "poll" the sql server to check for event changes, but across a large app this could be manage a suite of query notifications…Messy but would be cool to get event driven data changes.
