This is an excellent resource describing everything from Java installation to database connectivity:
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialTomcat.html

It also features links (at the end of the page) to more information about the subjects covered and books if you care to buy one.

Hope this helps,


Esopo.

Wesley,

While I am not sure of the syntax you will use in your scenario as I work with coldfusion, here is how you can display your database data once you know the string to output your data:

This is a normal text field in a form, with an initial value of "test":

<input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="test" size="40">

You could do:

1.   Set a variable equal to the balance of the user.

2.   <input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="*CODE TO OUTPUT VARIABLE HERE*" size="40">

Sorry I don't have specifics for your situation, but this may help some.

Cheers,

Jason
