Subject RE: Problem accessing two McKoi databases from Tomcat
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2006 09:55:19 GMT

Not sure if this is helpful to you. I had found this URL useful. The URL

Also, check the Java Servlet specification for more information.

Hi all,

please can someone confirm whether I need to clarify anything in my
question or take a different approach since I have had no replies and am
anxious to make sure I am doing all I can to seek help in the correct
way. Please correct me if my approach is wrong!

many thanks
