SQL Developer 3 - Connecting to SQL Server Using Third Party Drivers
SQL Devleoper 3 is here. Today I downloaded the early adopter version and am intent on connecting to a local SQL Server database to extract some support information.
Documentation on this process is contained in the online manuals located here
Here's a Quick How To Connect SQL Devleoper 3 to SQL Server or MySQL
Note that you can use "Check For Updates" to locate the available drivers.
Here's the steps I followed.
Click Help->Check For Updates
Then check the boxes to enable Oracle Extensions and Third Party SQL Devleoper Extensions
In the list scroll down to
JDTS JDBC Driver 184.108.40.206
check the box
If you need MySQL support that driver is right below and is named
MySQL JDBC Driver 220.127.116.11
Accept the GNU Lesser License Agreement
and the drivers will download
Restart SQL Developer
Now Click Tools->Preferences->Database->Third Party Drivers
In the Browser box you will see a couple of folders, one should be 'tmp'
Browse into Temp and open the update folder
The drivers you downloaded are there
Now if you get a message that says
java.sql.SQLException: I/O Error: SSO Failed: Native SSPI library not loaded.
You are missing a DLL.
Goto this address at SourceForge and download the missing DLL
Browse into the zip file and find a file named
Put that anywhere in your path and restart SQL Developer.
You will be all set and should be able to login using NT Authentication
