This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Will, You don't need a JDBC driver for your OS; you need one for your database. You don't say which database you're using, but generally the database vendor is the one who supplies the driver. Most JDBC drivers are platform-independent (written in pure Java) so the same driver will work on all OSs (or OS-like software in your case.)

Well let me introduce you to the only free JDBC driver available... the good old JDBC:ODBC bridge. How that can work on Tomcat, I don't know!! You could also buy a JDBC driver that supports MSAccess that will be a lot more flexible, but you'll have to search the sun JDBC database for available drivers. If its not too late, change your database to MySQL or even if you could upgrade to MSSQL Server there are a lot more options! Jamie [ November 26, 2003: Message edited by: Jamie Robertson ]
