I believe that you can change your start page by adding a <welcome-file> element in web.xml. That file is found in $CATALINA_HOME$/conf. As far as the Access stuff is concerned, you can connect to an access database using the JDBC-ODBC bridge driver. In doing that, you can put the database anywhere on the system that you like. You will have to create a system DSN for it, and JDBC will connect using your ODBC DSN. [ April 18, 2002: Message edited by: Bodie Minster ]
