Seeing as I work at Sybase I don't think it would go over very well if I 
were to use the jTDS driver rather than our own JConnect. While I have 
found a few issues with JConnect, they have been all relatively minor and 
are usually addressed rather quickly when we identify them, which only 
makes the product that much better. Other than that, if ever you plan to 
use XA in your application, jTDS will not work for you. That's why I have 
always used JConnect. The applications I am developing use XA frequently 
so JConnect is really the only option for us. (Other than the fact that we 
work at Sybase and really like and want to keep our jobs)

True. I shouldn't be blaming Sybase really.

Do you recommend the JConnect driver over jtds? I heard the jtds
driver was faster/better?
