Webapp with postgresql

Hi,
   I have set up my postgresql in a linux RH7.0 machine. And my Tomcat webapp is on a NT mechine.
   I have test the postmaster..it runs well. And same to the tomcat.
   My question is how can I establish the JDBC connection from Tomcat jsp page in Nt to the postgresql in Linux mechine?
   What do i need to do?
   1) where should I install the jdbc driver? Nt or Linux?
   2) how to set the port for the database?

Thanks.

1) The JDBC driver needs to be whereever the JSP page is. Since you have Tomcat running under NT, then NT is where the JDBC drivers should be installed.  They need to be installed somewhere so that your webapp can find them. You could put them into $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/<yourwebapp>/WEB-INF/lib. That way when Tomcat starts, it'll add the jdbc jar file to the classpath for the webapp.

2) The default port for postgres is 5432. Assuming you haven't changed the default, this is the port to use. To connect from your JSP page:

     .
     .
     .

        String db = new String("jdbc:postgresql://localhost:8080/my_test");
        String usr = new String("username");
        String pwd = new String("password");

        Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver");
                                     // Load database interface

        Connection conn =
            DriverManager.getConnection( db, usr, pwd );
     .
     .
     .

HTH.

Oops. Botched the previous code. The 8080 should read 5432, of course...

hi steve,
   thanks for the help. But, do I need to make changes in the pg_hba.conf ?

hi,
  I'm using postgres 7.1.2 so which jdbc driver is suitable for me? where can I get it?
   The error message is
ClassNotFoundException: Unable to load class postgresql.Driver SQLException: No suitable driver

1) The pg_hba.conf that is provided when postgres is first installed has a security policy which allows access by localhost and Unix sockets (not IP sockets.)

You'll probably have to add the address of your NT box to the pg_hba.conf file. The entry would look something like:

host   all   192.168.1.1   255.255.255.255   trust

That would allow full access from the IP 192.168.1.1

2) The JDBC driver is in /usr/lib/pgsql/jdbc7.0-1.2.jar. You'll need to ensure that your servlet has this in its classpath in order to find the driver.
