Crashing server?

Hi -
I am developing an application where two things happen:
1. A static html form submits to the servlet, where the jdbc dbc bridge is used to input the information into a MSAccess Database. and...
2. I use javamail to fire an email notification at someone.
Fine, each thing seems to work well independently (There is a separate class for sending emails via static methods). When I add the email part of the class to the mix, I get the following:
<*********BEGIN ERROR MESSAGE****************************>
JAVA caused an invalid page fault in
module <unknown> at 0000:1f43b3f0.

Bytes at CS:EIP:
I am running tomcat 3.2.2. After this message, tomcat closes.
What can I do to fix this? Is it a thread issue?
Thank you,

The JDBC-ODBC bridge is known to be buggy - especially in a multi-threaded environment. That would be my first suspect.

I had a similar problem.As Bill says the JDBC-ODBC bridge might be a problem.This is due to the fact that the bridge cannot open more than one connection to the database.i was also using a similar setup and my servlet engine (JRun)used to crash everytime I executed the servlet.
The solution to this problem is: u have to use a JDBC driver for MS Access.There are a few JDBC drivers available for MS Access but you have to buy them.What i did was i changed my database to
MySql. both mysql and the JDBC driver for mysql(www.worldserver.com/mm.mysql/) are free.u can try that.
if you want to look at the list of drivers available for MS Access go to (http://industry.java.sun.com/products/jdbc/drivers)
Hope this helps.

Thanks - I am using a vendor's JDBC Driver (type 3) and it works fine-and-dandy.

Hi Kevin
Could you please tell me which vendor's driver are you using, and where can I get it from? I'm in extremely urgent need of it.
Thanks in advance

Point your browser to: http://www.infozoom.de
Their jadozoom (or something to that effect) is pretty good, if temporary. And a type 3 driver, which is better than jdbc dbc.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
