MDM SE only seems to support the MSSQL drivers version 7.4 (the docs say 6.2.2, but IBM support says 7.4). Since then, there have been a number of newer releases from Microsoft, and we would like to use newer versions of the driver in accordance with our company policies on such things. However, when we try using the latest - 8.4 - then we get an error in the installer saying that the driver path is invalid. Our internal troubleshooting suggests the issue is with the installer using Java JDK 7, and the newer drivers requiring JDK 8 .
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Everyone who uses MSSQL, especially if serious security flaws are found in an older version.|
How should it work?
Ideally we would like support / for the driver to work with either the latest or the N -1 version of the drivers.
|Priority Justification||This could potentially expose clients to security issues|
