Subject Firebird and Interclient for use with 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.

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?

In a previous post, someone recommended using 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?
