I am having issues connecting to a MS SQL database with SQL developer, I have pasted a screen shot of my error message below, I have tried multiple blogs, websites, etc with no success.
Connection name: minc
hostname: my local machine name
Error Message= Status : Failure-Test Failed: Cannot connect to Microsoft SQL Server on localhost
Also, please confirm the proper location of where the jdbc driver for MSSQL should be downloaded from and placed.
If you are attempting to establish this connection to migrate from SQL Server Express to Oracle, SQL*Developer does not support migrating SQL Server Express.
You can view the databases it is supported with at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/supportedmigplatforms-086703.html.
