On attempting to create a connection to MS sql server thru a JSP, i get the error no suitable driver found. I have the J2EE 1.3 installed. I know the standard driver in there somewhere. What is it called?? and where should it be installed so that the page makes the connection???

are you loading driver using Class.forName(driver) ?
here driver is dependent on RDBMS u r using.
e.g. it can be
"oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver" in case u are using Oracle thin driver.
or "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver" in case u are using JDBC-ODBC driver.
or simply "ids.sql.IDSDriver" if you are using IDS driver.
also Take care you have put your driver (normally a .zip/.jar file) in your system's classpath.
Last, If you don't have driver for your database, you can go to RDBMS provider site (like oracle.com) and download it from there which is normally available for free.
Hope this helps.
