Subject Firebird, JDBC and Tomcat
Author jessica0012003 <

I am trying to configure Firebird and a JDBC driver for access by a
JSP application hosted by Tomcat. I am having difficulty in getting
it all to work. Firebird is up and running as a service, and Tomcat
runs the JSP app, but the app fails to connect to the database. I am
rather baffled by things like CLASSPATH etc, and where the client
should be installed. I am using Win2000.

The JSP app's documentation recommends using InterClient. What I
would like is a systematic description of how to install InterClient
and how to test it by using some kind of supplied utility. I have not
found much useful documentation for this. Any suggestions please?

Then, I would need to test the JDBC connectivity. How could I do
that independently of my JSP application?

I have been advised to use JayBird instead of InterClient. However,
it seems to me that JayBird is just a JDBC driver, and is not
supplied with any utilities that I can run for tests. Any comments?
