Subject jdbc and tomcat
Date Fri, 30 Jul 2004 07:48:36 GMT
I have got a problem with my Servlet which uses a JDBC database 
connection to a Ms SQL Server
There is a  getConnection command that should be executed. But this 
command fails and throws the exception with description: 
[Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC] Unable to connect. Invalid 
URL. is thrown. I dont know, what went wrong. Why cant the driver be 
found, although I have all driver jars in my classpath and also in the 
lib folder in the WEB_INF folder of the corresponding Addressbook-webapp 
in Tomcat?
also I have another problem:
Except of the SQL Errors there are other parsing errors , starting with 
SEVERE... while tomcat is starting up, which I cannot identify. . The 
message is:  The end-tag for element type "context-param" must end with 
a '>' delimiter.
First of all, all my tags of the  application ended in  '>' and 
secondly  I removed the  Webapplication folder  for  the  specific  
webapp  that  was  using  a web.xml with context-params and replaced it 
with another webapp which has all its configuration parameters 
hard-wired in the code.
Also I removed the Context file of the former webapp from 
conf\Catalina\localhost, but still it exists somewhere and causes errors.
Then I tried to clean them up by making a new installation of Tomcat, 
but I couldn't uninstall the old one.
Maybe you have an idea. Help!
thanx, Caroline
