I have tomcat 6.0.14 running on Linux 2.4.49. I've just installed tomcat and it appears to run fine. I've created a few jsp programs to test, but now I need to get down to business. I need to connect to SQL Server 2005 running on a Windows Small Business Server 2003. I need step-by-step help on doing this, perhaps starting with what I need to set up on the Server (DSN, ports, ...?). I've done a bit of SQL Server configuration, but not much. I'll be glad to break this up into mulitple questions as I go. There are lots of things on EE which I'll browser while waiting, but all the answers appear very piecemeal so far.
