You can get one of the trial versions of a commercial driver (which are all limited in one way or another -- number of connections, time period), you can buy a very expensive commercial version, or you can use jTDS.
jTDS is an open source type 4 (pure Java) JDBC driver for the MS SQL Server series. I'm using it without problems in a very large (over 600 Java classes) web application, I've tested it with a lot of JDBC-based database management tools, it even comes bundled with DataDino (a commercial database management tool). The project's web page is http://jtds.sourceforge.net, you can get the driver class name and URL format from there.
Hope this helps you,
