Solaris access to a MS SQL Database

Here is the problem I am trying to solve:
   We have MS SQL Server Database on an NT Server.
   We have working NT Clients
      -- we are using supplied ODBC drivers from Microsoft.
      -- access is now through 2 staticly linked C++ programs
         which are called from perl scripts.
   We plan to have Sun-Solaris clients with varying versions
        (for now suppose 2.51 with JDK 1.1.8).
      -- we do NOT plan for interactive access from Unix.

   I ported one of the C++ programs to Java using JDBC.  I works already
   for the NT clients.

   I want it to work for Solaris clients.

What do you recommend??
