Subject Re: JSTL1.1 and DataSource problems
Date Tue, 08 Jun 2004 19:50:20 GMT
Huh. That's usually triggered by basic config problems like not having the
driver available to the classloader or using a bad connection string/URL. How
'bout doing a quick test in your listener to be sure it's actually set up
correctly? In other words, once the listener has the DataSource, try just
getting a connection from it. Did you only upgrade Standard/JSTL, or did
anything else in your environment change?

Quoting Frank Burns <>:
