I want to use sun.jdbc.odbc.jdbcodbcdriver and I'm having trouble setting the CLASSPATH. I have searched high and low for instructions on how to set CLASSPATH, and can't find any. Would somebody please tell me how to set CLASSPATHs for drivers? I mean the basics... like where do you go to do it, what commands to run, how do you check to see if you've done it correctly, etc... please help. Much appreciated.
Also, is there a problem with using this in an applet? Do I need to use JSP instead? Thanks from inexperienced Java person here... also a basic beginners book recommendation that is detailed enough to get me into jsp/servlet applications would be highly appreciated as well.
