"Basic" interface for building a connection string in the admin console needs to be different for each DBMS type.

We need a different interface in the Admin Console for each DBMS type. For example, a SQLServer connection string requires an "instance name" and there should be a dedicated widget in the Admin Console for instance name when the user is trying to create a SQLServer connection. When the user clicks "MS SQL Server" in the drop-down box, it should show a set of fields specific to SQL Server. The code for building the connection string should be in ActionScript instead of where it is now in Java.

The label changes for when the Microsoft SQL Server is selected, also hiding the optional text and help component. The database string is now also constructed in the Actionscript code, as compared to before where it was sending a servlet and being made in Java.
