i am using tomcat 5.5.9 and and jdk1.5 when i try to use jdbc to connect to ms access via my servlet i get the following exception.

java.sql.SQLException[Microsoft][Odbc Driver Manager]Data source name not found and no default driver specified

i tested the model seperately and the code worked perfectly fine from the comman prompt!!

Can someone tell me what is that i am missing??
