I am using Tomcat as a web server and using JDBC-ODBC bridge.
It is not that the security permissions are not set properly. I claim so as the same applet is doing the file input and output operations quite efficiently. It is creating problems only while accessing the database(that too while accessing through browser only, not through appletviewer). Is it due to the JDBC-ODBC bridge? Should I use type 3 or 4 pure Java Drivers for accessing the database? Is it must to use type 3 or 4 pure java drivers?
I tried to run an evaluation version of type 4 pure java driver. But I failed to use it successfully, although I went through the manual thoroughly. Could you suggest some FREE type 3 or 4 pure java drivers? Where from I can download those FREE drivers?
