Installing database drivers in your Web application server

  1. Stop your Web application server.
  2. In case you use Apache Tomcat, clean the <apache-tomcat>/work/Catalina/localhost folder.
  3. Make sure that the driver for the database you want to use does not exist in any of the following folders. If the driver already exists in one of these folders, skip the next step.

  4. Download the correct database driver(s) from the official provider website, according to the version of the JVM you use to run your Web application server and the version of the database you want to use.
    In case you use Oracle, use a copy of the ojdbcX.jar file from your Oracle installation.
    Note that those drivers are specific and that you should only download the one(s) that you need.
