Dear Sir, My name is Haresh..Five days before i had joined with one company as trainee programmer. Company had posted me on his cliient side where i have to modify the existing application written in jsp and Mysql as database. As i am Fresher I don�t have the knowledge of actual development environment which i have to set up at client side. I have all application code in one folder. I had installed Netbeans 6.1 which have Mysql database connectivity. Now i have some of queries like:
I have only the application folder containing hole jsp code captured from its live server. So how can I make development environment i.e to run this project in netbeans successfully.
1.How to open the application folder in Netbeans 6.1 as i don�t have the application Web.xml folder. I have only the plane jsp application code in one folder. Kindly give me all steps required to open the project files into Netbeans 6.1.
2. It is necessary to download externally mysql connector as netbeans showing Mysql database new connection Icon for connecting to Mysql database. 3.The application is currently running on one server so how can connect development environment to the database of existing application. whether it will affect on live application?
Please assist me. your valuable suggestion may give me help to fly in java world successfully. Hoping your Positive response.
Thanks and Regards Haresh

Welcome to Javaranch!!
Why do you get the source code from live server? Dont you have any repository like CVS or SVN or VSS ?
Read a basic tutorial explaining the structure of a simple web project [use search engine]
If you are connecting to the database of development environment it will not affect the live server. But how ever do take care of the following. 1. Ensure in the code you are not invoking any remote components or services [like EJB or webservices or placing any message on a JMS Topic]. This you can do it by tweaking editing configuration files.
My suggestion would be request some one who has sufficient experience in your project to guide you initially. [ May 30, 2008: Message edited by: karthi keyan ]
