Database Connections for JSP Developers
To use a database with a JavaServer Pages (JSP) application, you need to create a database connection in Macromedia Dreamweaver 8. This chapter describes how to create the connection.
The chapter assumes you have set up a JSP application (see Setting Up a Web Application). It also assumes you have a database set up on your local computer or on a system to which you have network or FTP access.
This chapter contains the following sections:
About database connections in JSP
Connecting to a database
Connecting through an ODBC driver
Editing or deleting a database connection
To connect to the sample database provided by Dreamweaver, see "Setup for Sample JSP Site" in Getting Started with Dreamweaver. To learn more about databases and database connections, see Beginners Guide to Databases.
