How to access both SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 databases from one Process Commander system

Updated on September 13, 2021


Process Commander can connect to any of several databases, including Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005. To implement the JDBC drivers for MS SQL Server, you need to enter the appropriate driver information in the prconfig.xml file.

The syntax for loading the 2005 JDBC driver is:

The syntax for the 2000 driver is:

When you load both drivers on the same process, your system may crash when you attempt to retrieve data from the database.

This system crash occurs because the 2000 version of the JDBC driver is incorrectly accepting the 2005 microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc prefix.


To resolve this issue, you need to load the 2005 version of the driver first. Enter the driver information in prconfig.xml as follows:

<env name="database/drivers" value=";" />

This ensures that the 2005 driver handles the prefix microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc and the 2000 driver handles the prefix microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.
