As part of SQL Server’s ongoing interoperability program, we are pleased to announce the general availability of two SQL Server drivers: the Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server and the SQL Server Driver for PHP are now available!
Both drivers provide that robust data access to Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database. The JDBC Driver for SQL Server is a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) type 4 driver supporting Java Development Kit (JDK) version 1.7. The PHP driver will allow developers who use the PHP scripting language version 5.5 to access Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database, and to take advantage of new features implemented in ODBC.
You can download the JDBC driver here, and download the PHP driver here. We invite you to explore the latest the Microsoft Data Platform has to offer via a trial evaluation of Microsoft SQL Server 2014, or by trying the new preview of Microsoft Azure SQL Database.
