Hello everybody! I'm writing my first Tomcat web application and I'm establishing a connection to the database and putting it in the controller servlet's context. Next, I'll have some JavaBeans that want to access the database thru the default connection. Is it possible for a Javabean to access the connection object stored in the controller servlet's context? Thanx in advance!
The servlet context is available from the servlet or JSP page that is currently executing. In order to have it available within a JavaBean, you'll have to pass the reference to the servlet context to the bean. hth, bear
There are some other ways - for example, putting the ServletContext in the Application Context or ( less desirably ), the session. The bean could then lookup the Servlet context in the Application ( or session ) context. Another way is passing in the ServletContext in the Bean Constructor ( a parameter, but done only once ).
