I have a class(DatabaseConnection.java) which has methods which do database stuff(loading database driver, creating connection to the database and executing some queries).
I am using MS access database and the datasource is created properly. "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver" is the driver.
The problem is when i use the class from any servlet to get the connection to the datasource, the connection object is returned as null. But when i put a static main method in the same class and try to access the database, it works fine.
I could not find the reason and i could not get any help.
