Don't know. You should ask Microsoft.  Or try to find out yourself, beginning e.g. at the

page I mentioned.
I would tend to think that, this being a Microsoft module, it would be rather unlikely 
that it would not support what MS considers as the standard authentication method.

(This being said, we will keep on telling you that it is a bad idea, just so you don't 
forget)  ;-)

JDBC is the generic name of a technology, or let's say the description of the interface, 
on the Java side.
That's why the name is similar.

All JDBC drivers behave more or less the same way on the Java side, but on the other side

they are each adapted to their particular database system.

So yes, you may have to change some details of your configuration for the driver.  The 
driver's documentation should tell you how.
