Hi I am writng this code to run my Datasource and this works fine in Windows XP but when i use the same code in WINDOWS 98 i get a problem like method not supported. Does this mean that Datasource is only supported by XP and not by 98. I mean is the DataSource dependent on OS or the WEBCONTAINER used. DataSource=getDataSource(req,keyvalue). where keyvalue=userDB,req=HttpServletRequest object. Type of datasource used is "org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource"
