Using the sql.ini and interfaces file directory services

You can use sql.ini file for Windows and the interfaces file for UNIX to provide server information for jConnect for JDBC. By using the sql.ini or interfaces file, enterprises can centralize the information about the services available in the enterprise networks including Adaptive Server information.

Use the connection string to identify the sql.ini or interfaces file. On jConnect for JDBC, you may only connect to a single Directory Services URL (DSURL).
