JDBC driver API reference
The Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server provides an API that can be used within Java programming code to connect to and interact with a Microsoft SQL Server database.
JavaDoc.io website is primary
The Microsoft JDBC API Reference documentation is hosted for your viewing on the JavaDoc.io website. JavaDoc.io is now our primary website for JDBC reference documentation. Our JDBC reference documentation on JavaDoc.io is available at the following direct link:
JavaDoc.io has our JDBC reference documentation starting with version 6.0.
Only legacy JDBC documentation is here on docs
The JDBC API Reference documentation here on this website is no longer being updated. However, the articles here do contain the reference for JDBC driver versions 4.1 and 4.2.
Documentation for JDBC driver version 6.0, and some later versions, is also here. For any version 6.0 or later, use the JavaDoc.io website.
For conceptual information about using the JDBC driver, see Overview of the JDBC Driver.
For JDBC 4.1 and 4.2 compliance support, use Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.2 (or higher) for SQL Server. The previous Microsoft JDBC Drivers 4.1 and 4.0 releases do not support new methods introduced with JDBC 4.1 or 4.2.
API details for JDBC 4.1 compliance are not in this section. See JDBC 4.1 Compliance for the JDBC Driver.
API details for JDBC 4.2 compliance are not found in this section. See JDBC 4.2 Compliance for the JDBC Driver.
API details for Bulk Copy, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.2 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Using Bulk Copy with the JDBC Driver.
API details for Always Encrypted, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Always Encrypted API Reference for the JDBC Driver
API details for Using Table-Valued Parameters, available starting with Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server, are not found in this section. See Using Table-Valued Parameters
Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.4 supports compilation with JDK 7.0, 8.0, and 9.0.

Microsoft JDBC Drivers 6.0 and 4.2 support compilation with JDK 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0.
Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.1 supports compilation with JDK 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0.
