Hi,

I using eclipse tool to develop a struts application and in the struts-config.xml i have writtern data source as follows:

<data-sources>
<data-source type="org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource">
<set-property property="driverClassname" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/>
<set-property property="url" value="jdbc:mysql://localhost:8080/sksoftwares"/>
<set-property property="username" value="root"/>
<set-property property="password" value="admin"/>
</data-source>

I have added the struts capabilities to the application but when i restart the tomcat 6, i am getting this exception, can you please help me with this:
Also i am not seeing any packages related to dbcp, do i need to explicitly add to the project?

Yes. you need to explicitly add this in classpath of your project. Check http://commons.apache.org/dbcp/

You need to add MYSQL JDBC driver jar in your classpath. Check http://www.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/

Note that the datasource element was deprecated a *long* time ago and should probably be avoided in favor of any of the normal, current mechanisms.

Hi! I'm getting the same error, though in a different project. I'm using Spring 3 with Hibernate 4 and I try to follow most up-to-date tutorials (so if I'm using something old, please let me know).

My bean config file with hibernate settings is:



And this is the error, below. I have included lastest hibernate 4 (version 4.1.9) all required jars in the classpath.



Please give me a hint on what should I do - download apache dbcp? Somebody mentioned that basic data source is deprecated ("very old") - what should I use instead?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
