Post Help connecting to SQL Server 2005

I have started looking at Mirth and I am trying to create a very simple channel to pull data out of a SQL Server database and create a flat file. I am trying to connect the default intstance of SQL Server installed on the same machine as Mirth. I am getting the following error:

I downloaded the JDBC driver for SQL Server and set the classpath in my control panel environment variable to the location of the JDBC jar file but I am not having any success. I have been reading post and searches and see that others are using JDBC for SQL Server so I know it works.

Wrapped java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for dbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=AdventureWorks;integra tedSecurity=true; (6339ebee-00f7-4686-ba50-b674699847e4#2)

Thanks I appreciate any help

geraldb is an unknown quantity at this point

If you go into either the Database Reader or Database Writer panel, the Driver drop-down has a "SQL Server/Sybase" option that will let you connect to SQL Server 2005.

To use a custom driver, first place the jar file in the %MIRTH_HOME%/lib/custom folder. Then, edit the %MIRTH_HOME%/conf/custom/dbdrivers.xml file and add a new entry for your driver. You must specify the class name for the driver, and the display name that will appear in the drop-down. Restart the Mirth server and you should see the new driver in the Database Reader & Writer panels.

Thanks for your quick reply. I have my channel set up that way. I even installed the latest JRE 6 update 12. I feel like Mirth cannot find my JDBC driver, but I am not sure how to determine for sure. I do not have Java JDK installed because I did not think I need to plus I am not a Java developer so any suggestions you have will be much appreciated.

My Channle Setup:

Connector Type: Database Reader
Driver: SQL Server/Sybase
URL: jdbc:sqlserver://A668H3F1;databaseName=AdventureWorks;integratedSec urity=true
Use Javascript: Yes
Javascript code:
var dbConn = DatabaseConnectionFactory.createDatabaseConnection ('net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver','dbc:sqlserver ://localhost:1433;databaseName=AdventureWorks;integra tedSecurity=true','','');
var result = dbConn.executeCachedQuery("SELECT TOP 10 Title, FirstName, LastName FROM Person.Contact");

// You may access this result below with $('column_name')
return result;

Thanks Ponce

Thanks for that information. That fixed my problem. One thing I had to change was I could not connect to SQL with integrated security because it said the following message so I switched it to log in with a sql user and password.

Here is the error message:

java.sql.SQLException: I/O Error: SSO Failed: Native SSPI library not loaded.

I assume it cannot find the Windows authentication file.
