Latest Microsoft JDBC Driver Available

The Microsoft SQL Server team announced the public beta availability of the SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver, a new and fully supported JDBC driver for SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005. Available as a redistributable download for all SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 users at no additional charge, it features enhanced performance, security and support.
Microsoft encourages the Java community to download and test the beta and provide their feedback for incorporation into the product's development. The SQL Server 2005 JDBC driver is available for download here.
Go get it, because as a general rule it can't be distributed with J2EE ISV products so you'll want to have it on hand in the event you've got a J2EE deployment that will require access to a SQL Server 2000 or 2005 database.
