Subject Re: Is SQL Server 2005 supported in Torque?
Date Fri, 19 Jan 2007 20:38:54 GMT

I just moved a torque app (v 3.0) from MySQL to SQL Server 2005 this
week.  (I'd previously also run this with SQL Server 2000, so I had a
little experience).  Some notes...

I downloaded the latest version of the Microsoft JDBC driver.  After
some gnashing of teeth, I realized that the driver class and JDBC URL
format have changed from the earlier JDBC.  My setup...

torque.dsfactory.broadcast.connection.user = user
torque.dsfactory.broadcast.connection.password = test
torque.dsfactory.broadcast.connection.url =
torque.dsfactory.broadcast.pool.validationQuery=SELECT 1
torque.dsfactory.broadcast.connection.driver =

A couple of changes from earlier versions of the JDBC driver:
* In the past the URL has needed ";SelectMethod=cursor" but I left it
off and it seemed to work.
* In the past you need to set SQL server to work with Windows or
user/password authentication.  Both are now supported (there's a DLL
to install if you want to use Windows authentication)
* Apparently the port has changed from 1433 to 3249.  Maybe it's
better to not even specify this.

And some potential bugs/issues
* When generating SQL with idmethod set to native, the identity column
was not correctly generated.  I had to set the autoIncrement="true" on
each individual primary key column.

* Then, in order to insert data for tables with identity columns, I
had to tweak the SQL template as follows.  (required in order to
insert a row with an primary key).  I'm using an older version of
Torque, not sure if this is exactly applicable
