The jTDS Project has released version 1.0.3 of the open source JDBC driver for Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase. jTDS 1.0.3 is a major bugfix release, greatly improving stability over previous versions.

o get/setTimestamp() DST problem
o Server side cursors: ResultSet.relative() and updateRow() issues
o Timeouts: memory leaks, not working correctly
o Connection.close() hanging on network failure
o ParameterMetaData: incomplete implementation
o Sybase: Batch updates using JDBC escapes not working
o Sybase: TEXT and IMAGE values truncated on write
o Single Sign On crashing the JVM
o Clob disk caching: data loss, temp file leaks
o Statement cancel: race condition, hang
o CallableStatement update count caching
o WRITETEXT and UPDATETEXT generating spurious output parameters
o SQL query parser issues

New features:
o Client side cursors and multiple open ResultSets per Statement
o Added a batchSize parameter to control executed batch size
o Added a WSID URL parameter to set the workstation ID
o Connection recovery after OutOfMemoryError

jTDS is the most performant JDBC driver for both Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase. It is a complete implementation of JDBC 3.0, it passes the J2EE 1.3 certification and Hibernate test suites and is the preferred SQL Server/Sybase driver for JBoss, Hibernate, Atlassian JIRA and Confluence, DbVisualizer and Compiere.

The complete changelog is available on SourceForge and the driver can be downloaded from here.
