Hi
Sorry if my question seems silly..it should be very basic to experts like you

I want to create a mysql database that I will later connect to from a servlet under apache tomcat server.
my question : where should i put the mysql database ? should it go into WEB-INF directory of my application ?
what is the mysql SQL command i should type to put db int the right directory ?

thanks.

When you connect to a MySQL database you connect to a server not the files directly. So the location of the actual files is not relevent. It only matters to your application that you can reach the mysql server through a socket from wherever you are running.

Are you confused about where to have the driver jar?
