Subject Re: Problem accessing two McKoi databases from Tomcat
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2006 08:44:37 GMT
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
