I am using JDK 1.3. I would appreciate your .JAR file.  Thanks.

Are you using JDK 1.3?
If so, you need to modify some sources, and recompile.

If you want, I can send personally to you my own .JAR file, that works fine for
me (but I can't give you any type of support in the future, because I'm very,
very, very busy with long time development process into my company).

I had the same message at the past, and correct with this single action.

Assunto:  [freetds] problem creating new connection with FreeTDS_JDBC

After many happy months with FreeTDS under perl, I have finally come to the
point where I need to do something with FreeTDS_JDBC.  The only thing is
that I am having some weird problems.  It works fine on a unix
box(FreeBSD-3.x,4.0-STABLE,5.0-CURRENT) but I am having problems on an NT
machine(NT4 sp6, which has a patch that seemed to fix the TCP stack that sp6

Here is the snippet of code where it throws an exception:

    con =
        "test_user", "test_password");

And here is a little bit of the stack trace:

Exception- java.lang.NullPointerException
        at com.internetcds.jdbc.tds.Driver.connect(
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(Unknown Source)

So the question is, has anyone else run into this before?  And before I
forget, this code is trying to be run from inside a servlet on a Tomcat 3.1
server.  I know that this is not much to go on but I am rather green when it
comes to the java so let me know what else would be helpful and I will add
it next time.

Thanks for any help!
