Subject Java ODBC related problem
Author Alejandro

I'm trying to do some queries to a firebird database (windowsxp, fb
1.5.1). I've configured the ODBC source and it tests OK, I can
connect from a variety of ODBC clients and it works okay.

I've written a simple java test program and it also works ok.
However, when I try to connect from a servlet I get:

java.sql.SQLException: unavailable database

I'm not using connection pools or anything, just a direct connection,
established the same way that in the java test program which works.
Furthermore, the same servlet connects ok to another ODBC database
(not firebird but access).

Any ideas why this can happen? I've seen an old usenet post with this
problem in firebird but without answers.

Thanks in advance,
