Unix to Sql Server via JDBC

I am trying to connect SQL SERVER VIA JDCB. Following is something I tried and will appreciate any help what I am doing wrong
Here's what I did, I tried several variations, but I keep getting this error:

Exception in thread "main" java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC]Unable to connect.  Invalid URL

I tried:

Driver d = (Driver)Class.forName("com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver").newInstance();

Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://;selectMethod=cursor", "jdbc123", "test1456"); replacing :// with \\IP

my classpath is :
voyager->whseuser: echo $CLASSPATH

and it's not giving me a classpath error, so I think my classpath is right.

import java.sql.*;

//import oracle.jdbc.*;
public class HelloWorldApp {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

       System.out.println("Hello World!"); // Display the string.

Driver d = (Driver)Class.forName("com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver").newInstance();

Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://;selectMeth

od=cursor", "jdbc123", "test456");

I have never tried this on a sqlserver before, only in oracle.

The exact format of the URL will depend on what you are using to connect but the format I know for talking to SQL server instances is:
Munging the data in your supplied URL would produce:

You'd probably do better looking at your client config manual for the exact config file syntax to use.
