Subject Re: Problem accessing two McKoi databases from Tomcat
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2006 12:01:30 GMT
So if I understand ..Your 2 separate jdbc connections are acquiring Data ..
but then once both resultsets are acquired I would suggest you must 
programatically merging the contents
before sending the (presumably HTML) formatted info back via the Response 

Do you have any requirements on how this data should be formatted?
Resultset from DB1 followed by Resultset from DB2
one line of Data from DB1 interleaved by 1 line from DB2
Anyone else ???
