Instructions below assumes you are using
- Android Developer Tools Build id: v22.0.1-685705,
- Eclipse Version: 4.2.1.v20130118 Build id: M20130204-1200
- JTDS 1.2.5
though things will work out other versions higher than this and possibly lower as well , its just to ensure a known state where things worked out.
So, once the JTDS is jar is download, first step is to include jar to your build path
Next, though it seems like a bug, go to order and Export tab and enable jtds
Now, for the database connection , all network operations should be in different thread, ie away from the main UI thread, so use AsyncTask.
Working code is can be downloaded from here , read the code, it is well documented.
