You have to download the 3rd party JDBC driver and point SQL Developer to it. You can read how to do it here.

  1. I was finally able to connect to SQL Server 2008 after a specific user ID and password was created on the SQL Server database. I was not able to connect using my own User ID or Windows Authentication

  2. I was not able to connect to SQL Server 2008 until a User ID was createdon the SQL Server database. I could not connect using my own User ID or Windows Authentication.
