Dear SQL Server developers and users:
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server. Some of you reported problems with dates when using JRE 1.7.
The Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server currently supports JRE 1.5 & JRE 1.6, however we have made modifications to return correct date values regardless of the JRE version. This modification is available in the production version of the Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server. The Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server
is supported on JRE 1.5 and JRE 1.6, and support for JRE 1.7 is on our roadmap.
In addition, the driver modification is also available for SQL Server 2000 customers as a hotfix in the 3.0 version of our driver. Please review the hotfix article to determine if the fix is applicable to you and if so, click the link to download the hotfix (applicable for all platforms).
