Hi I am using Tomcat 5.5.7 . If i want to use a feature in JDBC 3.0 do i need to check if the container supports that JDBC version?

Or should i simply put the jar file implementing that version in the lib directory and forget about it?

The servlet container has nothing to do with JDBC. That is all contained in the jar file(s) that constitute the Driver implementation you are using. So long as the Driver files are on the classpath it should work fine.
