Connection refused

I am trying to configure a web application developed in JSP in an RHEL 5.6 environment.
The webserver I am using is Tomcat 5. The database used is MySql 5. I have installed jdk 6.
However, the application refuses to connect to the database. The login page is visible when I access it in the browser.
But when I try to login with the proper credentials, the following exception is coming in catalina.out log file.

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
at gnu.java.net.PlainSocketImpl.connect
at java.net.Socket.connect(libgcj.so.7rh)
at java.net.Socket.connect(libgcj.so.7rh)
at java.net.Socket.<init>(libgcj.so.7rh)
at java.net.Socket.<init>(libgcj.so.7rh)
at com.mysql.jdbc.StandardSocketFactory.connect(StandardSocketFactory.java:173)
at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.<init>(MysqlIO.java:267)
This is followed by a few more lines.

Please help...

Please check if you have configured the correct MySQL JDBC driver. Also, please check if the login account information is present in the database.

Not many get the right opportunity !
