Java with MS SQL Server

We are considering using Java with MS SQL server instead of Oracle to save money. Does using MS SQL server pose any problems ? I have worked on enough Java projects to know that any JDBC datasource will work. But I was wondering if there are any other issues we should consider ?

We plan on using Spring quite heavily, JSP/JSF, and may be YUI. We may use Hibernate too.

jTDS or MS Sql Server will have database drivers available for Java applications down the road, right ?

We might need reporting capabilities from the database in future. If we have to allow users to generate reports, then i guess it makes sense to go with instead of Java, right ?

I have already proposed MySQL but the admin group does not support it.

MS-SQL works with JDBC and has done for years.

I don't know why you would chose C# over Java for connectivity/reports, I am not sure what difference you expect this to make. MS SQL supports SQL which is neither C# nor Java but a language in itself. The core query will be in SQL so it make no difference in my mind.
