What does this mean? Have you checked the Tomcat logs files if there are any error messages? If so, which ones?
Have you put the DB driver jar file into WEB-INF/lib directory of the web application you're running this code in? Remember that Tomcat doesn't use the standard system classpath.

First of all thank you for your replay
The problem is at the line Class.forName ("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance (); conn = DriverManager.getConnection (url, userName, password); where connection can't establish...I copied the connector mysql-connector-java-5.0.8 into lib folder..Yet the prob persist

You still haven't told us WHAT the problem is - post the complete error message and stack trace.
Have you restarted the web app after copying the jar file?
You should remove the ".newInstance()" method call by the way. It's not needed. [ December 19, 2007: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
