Hi, I m doing this project where i create a web-page linked to a database (I will be using JSP to generate the web pages).I will be working on the project from home and i have win98 installed. So far i managed to download tomcat 3.3 and run the JSP examples, and for my database i installed MySql. But now what? How to go about testing that Mysql works with Tomcat? I m confused as to what i should do,and this JDBC, what do i need to do ..do i need to install something separately or configure anything? Any suggestion would help, Thank you Sraboni
First, you need a driver to connect to MySQL. You can get one as mentioned from the post above. Install the driver by putting it in your classpath. Then you can start playing around with your JSP pages connecting to the database. If you have any specific questions, post them here!
Dear Saraboni, please change your name into at least 2 words, this is as per javaranch naming policy, and i think you will have to re-register for this purpose. Good luck with your assignment. Rashid Ali
(oops, you nearly slipped past me!) "Sraboni", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please view your profile and select a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks. Dave [ January 07, 2002: Message edited by: David O'Meara ]
