First thing you probably want to try is the DB Taglibs:

They have good documentation to get you on your way for the JSP side of 

IB Phoenix, which from memory is the corporation behind Firebird has a bit of 
information about Tomcat at:

Their example though is to setup a realm for user authentication but things 
like the connectionUrl would be the same.

You should also check out the JNDI Datasource howto at:

Follow the MySQL one and just modify it for Firebird.

Using all that information should end with you having a JNDI datasource setup 
in your server.xml, the Jaybird JDBC driver's .jar file in WEB-INF/lib, the 
dbtags .jar file in WEB-INF/lib, the taglib .tld file in WEB-INF and your 
.jsp page in the root of your web application, then with a restart of Tomcat 
you should be good to go.

Just read the doco very carefully and go one step at a time. :)
