Using jtds 1.3.1 sql driver with Confluence

Davin Studer Community Champion Aug 26, 2014

Confluence ships with the 1.2.2 jtds driver. This was released in 2007 and there is a newer one 1.3.1 that was released in 2013. Does anyone know if there is a reason Confluence ships with 1.2.2? Has anyone tried using the 1.3.1 driver? If so, thoughts? Thanks.

Hey Davin,

The reason why we do not ship that driver version is because it was not fully tested with Confluence, we do have a feature request and if possible please vote up for the feature and add your thoughts in there so we can increase it's relevance:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-26834

For your second question, as a MSSQL Server user, I used that driver in a couple scenarios and I did not had problems on Confluence. The main reason I used that driver version was to make Confluence to connect on MSSQL using windows authentication.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and Regards,

That JIRA ticket seems to me to be about support for Microsoft's driver. I am referring to the jtds 1.3.1 not Microsoft's driver.

Apologies, I used the jdts driver over the microsoft driver for so long that I basically see jtds driver asif it were the official MS driver :p. I raised a proper feature request to address that: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-34872
