Re: Connecting SQL server 2014 using windows authentication

1. copy sqljdbc jar (the most recent version) to \ReadyAPI-1.6.0\bin\ext

2. copy folders xa and auth to the same place and add it to the PATH (there should be 2 folders for each, in total 4 folders to add to the path)

3. copy sqljdbc_auth.dll to \ReadyAPI-1.6.0\bin

4. restart machine


Your connection string should be :

jdbc:sqlserver://<SERVER_NAME>:<PORT:1433>;databaseName=<DB: DB_NAME>;integratedSecurity=true
