Struts has support for a data source setup in struts-config.xml, however, it is not recommended for use (because you have to pass the datasource from the action to your data layer ). You should use jndi with tomcat. There are plenty of resources to see how to do this but just briefly.

In server.xml in the context tag:

<Resource name="jdbc/name" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"
maxActive="100" maxIdle="30" maxWait="10000"
username="user" password="pass" driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"

In web.xml:

<description>Display name</description>

In Java Code:

Now use connection to execute query. You should lookup PreparedStatement or CallableStatement to use as opposed to just a straight query.
