Hi all.. I have gone through FAQ's section. But I have not found any answer for my problem, so I am posting it here. I am able to connect to the Oracle database using a "hello world" kind of program(like able to retrieve the data from a table in the database). But the problem is when I am trying to develop a small login application using JSP and Servlets, I am unable to connect. I am doing this application through Sun NetBeans 5.5 IDE. I have included the .jar(ojdbc14.jar) file in the libraries of my project. But still I am unable to connect to the database. I have put that "connection" code in a try-catch block and the code I have written in catch block is getting executed. How do I resolve my problem?
