I have been working with ms sql server in my computer and already got my ".jar" file in my virtual machine, but still when I am trying to make the connection with the database I receive an error and I want to know something. Do I need to start the data base in my virtual machine in order to make the connection? or do I need to install something else more than just the connector? I have been with this problem for a while and in the website says that as long as I have the connector in the jdbc folder I should be fine. I even asked a friend who is an expert in databases and told me this should be an easy task but even he was not able to do it.
Thanks in advance for your answer, I really appreciate it.
