Recently I'm trying to connection MS SQL Server 2005 from JSP, and I face a problem:
When I declare my connection in declaraction tag, the server will display ClassNotFoundException. But if I put my connection in script tag, it is working fine.
I used this method to do the connection for oracle and mysql, both are working fine. But when I connect to ms sql, it doesn't work. I have downloaded the latest sqljdbc4.jar, put it in tomcat/lib folder, and restart the tomcat.
However, when I tried to put the connection in jsp script tag, it works.
Driver driver = null;
PreparedStatement = null;
