JDBC SQLServer 2000 connection problem

JDBC SQLServer 2000 connection problem

(OP)
Hi all,

I have the code below...see bottom of thread

I am using netbeans 6.9, if i just run the file as is, it connects to the DB and disconnects just fine.  However, if i create an instance of this class from within another class and call the QueryDB() method, i get this error:

com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The TCP/IP connection to the host XXXXXX, port 1433 has failed. Error: "Malformed reply from SOCKS server. Verify the connection properties, check that an instance of SQL Server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port, and that no firewall is blocking TCP connections to the port."

I am comletely stumped..the connection code obviously works, but only when called from the files main method, but not from outside the class?
public class DB_Connection {

     private java.sql.Connection  con = null;
     private final String url = "jdbc:sqlserver://XXXXXXX:1433;databaseName=XXXX;integratedSecurity=true";

     private final String selectMethod = "cursor";


     public DB_Connection(){}


     public java.sql.Connection getConnection(){
          try{
               Class.forName("com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver");
               con = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url);
               if(con!=null) System.out.println("DB connected...");
          }catch(Exception e){
               System.out.println("Error Trace in getConnection() : " + e.toString());
         }
          return con;
      }



     public void QueryDB({

        con = this.getConnection();

        try{

            if(con!=null){

                closeConnection();

               }else System.out.println("Error: No active Connection");

          }catch(Exception e){}


     }


     public void closeConnection(){
          try{

               if(con!=null)
                    con.close();
               con=null;
               System.out.println("DB disconnected.");

          }catch(Exception e){}

     }


     public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

          DB_Connection myDbTest = new DB_Connection();
          myDbTest.QueryDB();

       }

}


 

RE: JDBC SQLServer 2000 connection problem

Are you executing both inside NetBeans? Maybe it's a problem with firewall permissions

Cheers,
Dian

Hi Dian,

When it works i am using 'Run file' option within netbeans just to run that java file.  When it does NOT work i am running the whole application after a clean and build.  Does this off anymore clues?

Wrong version of the jdbc driver in your class-path?
