Yes, I am also trying to work out how to configure DBCP (and JNDI if necessary). One problem is that the Struts 1.3 struts-config.xml doesn't seem to allow the <data-sources> element any more! There was a very simple explanation for how to use <data-sources> in the Wrox Struts book but it's no longer valid, I think. See:
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.3//EN" "http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-config_1_3.dtd">
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.2//EN" "http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-config_1_2.dtd">
Does anyone know of a tutorial/explanation just to set up a simple database connection with Tomcat 5.5 and Struts 1.3.5 please?
