    Smile SQL server express edition connection


    I'm a new JAVA developer and I'm having some basic problems.

    The server name is : PC346519167106\SQLEXPRESS but when I put in my code String dbUrl = "PC346519167106\SQLEXPRESS"; I have the following error in eclipse editor:

    Invalid escape sequence (valid ones are \b \t \n \f \r \" \' \\ )

    If I can not use '\' to set dburl, how can I correct this ? Changing Server name on SQL SERVER ? How can I do this ?

    I have the same fot the user name string (PC346519167106\Patricia e Pierre).

    Best regards.

    \ is a special character. Escape it with another \ to get "PC346519167106\\SQLEXPRESS"
