I am trying to find the SQL SERVER 2000 JDBC Driver to use in extracting data from SQL SERVER and also carrying out several operation implemented in Java/JSF. Any idea where I could get my hands on the driver? It is no surprise that Microsoft.com /MSDN stopped supporting and hence supplying the necessary driver. Please help and it is greatly appreciated

You can jTDS JDBC Driver, it is open source and written in java and support both Sql Server and Sybase. It says:

jTDS is an open source 100% pure Java (type 4) JDBC 3.0 driver for Microsoft SQL Server (6.5, 7, 2000, 2005 and 2008) and Sybase (10, 11, 12, 15). jTDS is based on FreeTDS and is currently the fastest production-ready JDBC driver for SQL Server and Sybase. jTDS is 100% JDBC 3.0 compatible, supporting forward-only and scrollable/updateable ResultSets, concurrent (completely independent) Statements and implementing all the DatabaseMetaData and ResultSetMetaData methods. Check out the feature matrix for more details.

Quite a few of the commercial JDBC drivers out there are based on jTDS (or FreeTDS), even if they no longer acknowledge this. jTDS has been tested with virtually all JDBC-based database management tools and is the driver of choice for most of these (recommended for DbVisualizer and SQuirreL SQL, distributed with Aqua Data Studio and DataDino). jTDS is also becoming a common choice for enterprise-level applications: it passes both the J2EE 1.3 certification and Hibernate test suites, and is recommended for JBoss, Hibernate, Atlassian JIRA and Confluence and Compiere.

you can download and read more information of it in http://jtds.sourceforge.net/.
