    Unanswered: connecting to database

    Hi everybody

    I was trying to connect to datatbase on my computer, through java. I understand that I will need to download JDBC driver for that. But i am not sure which driver will I need, and where do i need to put it. Do I have to make some changes in CLASSPATH as well?

    I am using SQL 2000. My jdk profile is j2sdk1.4.2.01. Also what is subname in

    jdbc:<subprotocol>:<subname>

    is it the name of database or what???

    In need of help !!!!!!

    thanks in advance

    The jdbc drive should be in the classpath and added to your project (depends on your environment).

    I believe that the subname is the database (could be its ip), with subprotocol being the driver, for db2 its db2, not sure thought for sql 2000.

    Are you creating a standalone java application and appled or jsp ?
