We need to connect to a SQL Server database that resides on a SQL server that has a named instance, from Jcaps 5.1.3 and Jcaps 6.

The connection is not successful though.

We have tried following JDBC connection settings:
 ServerName: sqlseerver\instancename
 PortNumber: 1234

Please let me know whether we can connect to a named SQL instance and if so, how to configure the JDBC properties?
