Hi all,

I have the following set up in my server.xml .I want to know how to access the database connection in the java file.
do I need to write a separate class again to access the database or I can simply say get connection and run the query.





Thanks,
Jyothsna

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
