I'm upgrading my Tomcat installation and updating all old versions of JDBC connector with connector/j and using the latest MySQL DB which is 5.0.
Tomcat is working fine because my *.jsp pages loaded just fine. and i'm sure the problem is with my connector/j.
I did all that before with the help of a book. I lost the book and formatted my PC. I can seem to be placing the JAR in the correct places.
i created a root directory C:\jdbc and set the CLASSPATH C:\jdbc copied the JAR file into common\lib inside Tomcat.
what are the differences between:
jdbc:mysql://127.0.0.1:8080/DSA <--name of my DB (is this worng?)
i created a simple file to test the connection by retrieving some data from MySQL but when i ran the file it gave me a bunch or errors.
i can post the errors if u want.
