Josh,
Can you connect to the DB other ways (sql session, Access)? If you can, what are the jdbc errors you are recieving?
Depending upon what drivers you use, you may or may not even need the JDK on the server. You'll need it on the client.
To check the config of the install, just type java -version. If you get the java version, the install should be ok. Dependent upon path, of course.
