How to connect and access SQL Database server from Android app??

Recently I have tried to connect to SQL Database server which is in my local network machine. I can connect and access SQL server from my Android app. I did it in the following way….

1. First of all you need a JDBC driver library for SQL Server. As we know android library has only SQLite database driver. So first download an open source JDBC driver from this http://jtds.sourceforge.net/ site (I downloaded the Linux version).

2. Then import the jar file into your Android app.(jtds-1.2.5.jar).

3. Now just try this code by modifying according to your context

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.Statement;

import net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.*;

public void query2()
{
Log.i("Android"," MySQL Connect Example.");
Connection conn = null;
try {
String driver = "net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver";
Class.forName(driver).newInstance();
//test = com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver.class;
String connString = "jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://server_ip_address :1433/DBNAME;encrypt=fasle;user=xxxxxxxxx;password=xxxxxxxx;instance=SQLEXPRESS;";
String username = "xxxxxx";
String password = "xxxxxxxxxx";
conn = DriverManager.getConnection(connString,username,password);
Log.w("Connection","open");
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
ResultSet reset = stmt.executeQuery("select * from TableName");

//Print the data to the console
while(reset.next()){
Log.w("Data:",reset.getString(3));
//              Log.w("Data",reset.getString(2));
}
conn.close();

} catch (Exception e)
{
Log.w("Error connection","" + e.getMessage());
}
}

4. You will find more about parameter passing here in connection string  http://jtds.sourceforge.net/doc.html .
