Hello, My server has installed with Tomcat JSP. Does that means that database will support JDBC as well? I am not sure as it appears JDBC (may not be avalible) Here is what I retrieve from MYSQL manager. Connection Strings Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:cfanet_forums:localhost","cfanet_forums","<PASSWORD HERE>"); PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "cfanet_forums", "<PASSWORD HERE>") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error()); mysql_select_db ("cfanet_forums"); JDBC (may not be avalible) <%@ page import="java.sql.*" %> Connection connection = null; Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver").newInstance(); connection = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:mysql://localhost/cfanet_forums?user=cfanet_forums&password=<PASSWORD HERE>"); Thanks!
