servlets and JDBC on tomcat 5.5

Hello all,

Can anybody tell me which URL should I use while making a connection to database suing DriverManager.getConnection(URL) on a tomcat 5.5 server. I tried unsuccessfully both URLs "jdbc dbc:MyDB" and "jdbc dbc://localhost/MyDB". The driver is sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver and DB is MS-Access database.

Thanking all.

The JDBC URL is independent of whether you are using servlets or Tomat.

Moved to the JDBC forum.

jdbcdbc:MyDB looks like a JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver URL. Did you setup the ODBC connection?

You should also Tell the Details. Post a stack trace. Show actual code snippets.

Hi Lalit,
You may try this

Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("Jdbc:Odbc:MyDB");
I agree. Here's the link:
