So you need to access MSSQL from JSP on *nix?  No problem t'all, but last I
remember, Microsoft wasn't providing the .jar files to access SQL.  I'm sure
you've heard of the terrible time MS has had with Java in the courts =)
Anyways, yes those drivers exist, but you'll most likely have to pay for

Hope this helps!
