Checking your JDBC Driver Version
By Pete Freitag
Macromedia recently updated their JDBC driver technote, but I wasn't sure if I already had the 3.3 driver installed (since they may have just updated the text in the technote). So I wrote some code to check what version of the jdbc driver my server was running, and sure enough I needed to update it:
<cfset jdbcDriver = CreateObject("java", "macromedia.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver")> <cfoutput> #jdbcDriver.getMajorVersion()#.#jdbcDriver.getMinorVersion()# </cfoutput>
After you install the 3.3 drivers, the result of this code should be "3.3", if it says otherwise, you can update your drivers.
