Subject Re: Problems with a simple JSP and mySQL connect
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2001 13:41:31 GMT
I have data in this table as follows

HOST USER PW PRIVS (shortened to save space)
localhost root 9999 All are set to 'Y'
larry root (empty) All are set to 'Y'
localhost (empty) (empty) All are set to 'N'
larry (empty) (empty) All are set to 'N'
localhost howler 9999 All are set to 'Y'

Not sure whats going on with this or what exactly should be here.

Any suggestions would be helpful
