Database connection to MS SQL 2005 (URGENT Help Needed)

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to connect my adobe form to MS SQL 2005?

I have this code:


try {

InitialContext initialContext = new InitialContext ();

DataSource dataSource = (DataSource) initialContext.lookup ("jdbc/MyAlias");

java.sql.Connection connection = dataSource.getConnection ();

} catch (SQLException e) {

// handle exception

} catch (NamingException e) {

// handle exception



Other than these, what else do i need to do inorder to get my database connection up?



And after my database connection is up, how do i test to check if my database connection is up or not?

How do i extract the information from the database and put them onto the textfields/dropdownlists on my form?

Thanks In Advance

    Hi Lim,

    You can use the below code for making a database connection and populating the value nodes.

    I have created a view called 'ABC' which has a context with VN called 'FillData' which has VA 'Name', 'Age' & 'Address'.

    //Code for database connection.

    InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();

    DataSource ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("jdbc/AliasName");

    Connection conn = ds.getConnection();

    Statement st = null;

    ResultSet rs = null;

    IPrivateABCView.IFillDataElement dataEle = null;

    st = conn.createStatement();

    //Execute the appropriate SQL query

    rs = st.executeQuery("SELECT NAME,AGE,ADDRESS WHERE SEX='M' ");



    //Code that will populate your VN based on the data obtained in the ResultSet.

    dataEle = wdContext.createFillDataElement();






    Close the connections




    Add the appropriate Try--Catch blocks wherever necessary.

    A simple way to test the connection is to put Message Manager sts before and after the ds.getConnection() code.

    Hope this helps.
