Hi, I'm using Tomcat writing a simple Tomcat application. Im also using Tomcat JDBC Realm authentication. In the instruction manual it says: Place a copy of the JDBC driver you will be using inside the $CATALINA_HOME/server/lib directory (if you do not need it visible to web applications) or $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib (if it will be used both by Tomcat 4 and by your apps). Note that only JAR files are recognized! This is the driver my using accessing my Ms Access database sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver But where can I find the JAR-file Im supposed to copy? Regards Erik
Hi, I think what you are refering to is a driver that uses the native ODBC to communicate with the database, typically the Driver and the Database should reside on the same machine. The JDBC driver that communicates with the ODBC is bundled along with the jre, so you it will be automatically visible to the tomcat instance and to all the applications that are running. so all you need is you create a ODBC System DSN for your Database and that write your connection related stuff. and it should work.
