Hi all! I really hope someone can do a huge favor and help my group out!
We are students and we are trying to complete an assignment to create an interface page using jsp and oracle.
Using XP pro we have installed all of the above.
We then configured apache http server to listen on port 8080. So http://localhost:8080/ returns the apache page. Oracle has been installed as http://localhost:8081/apex (this brings up the login page)
In Oracle we have created a user ge password ge and made a table with 'first_name' and 'last_name' just for testing purposes. That's it.
Now, we have been trying to create a jsp page that will connect to Oracle with no luck so far.
Now the tricky stuff. We downloaded the jdbc-odbc bridge. We went into control panel>>admin>>odbc connections and made a SYSTEM DSN called ge2. (What should the configuration be right here???).
Now, since we are using Dreamweaver 8 on my test_1.jsp page I clicked the + sign (create a new connection) and here I must tell it what to use. Ex: Oracle Thin, JDBC-ODBC, etc. We selected the JDBC-ODBC and then we have to fill in the following properties...
Battery died. On a Mac now. Will edit later today.
Now, I have read that creating the database connection in the page is and old way and is now considered to be Wrong! Instead you must create a servelet, whatever that is, and connect through that.
If you guys need more detail or anything like that just let me know.
We appreciate it!
