Hi,
I want to run my applcation on net. hosting server is linux OS.
all port and userid and password r correct.
I downloaded the unix .tar file for SQL Server jdbc driver from microsft download site to my windows desktop.
I then extracted the 3 mssql*.jar files and uploaded them to the linux in web-inf\lib as well as web-inf\classes.

When trying to connect to the database thru the application the connection manager is not able to connect to the database and get a connection. Throws up following error.

First when trying to get a connection
Apr 7, 2004 3:37:14 AM com.ac.GEN.GEN.GEN_GEN_Error_Functions N_Log_Error
SEVERE: (*Type = Exception*) User Id = 0 ()
Cause = java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC]Error establishing socket.
Class = com.microsoft.jdbc.base.BaseExceptions
196: File = ConnectionPool.java (F_Get_New_Connection)
45: File = ConnectionPool.java (N_Initialize_Connection_Pool)
37: File = ConnectionPool.java (<init>
136: File = PoolManager.java (N_Create_Pools)
57: File = PoolManager.java (N_Initialize_Pool_Manager)
25: File = PoolManager.java (<init>
134: File = GEN_0005fGEN_0005fUser_0005fLogin$jsp.java

Second when trying to close a non-existing connection

Apr 7, 2004 3:37:14 AM com.ac.GEN.GEN.GEN_GEN_Error_Functions N_Log_Error
SEVERE: (*Type = Exception*) User Id = 0 ()
Cause = java.lang.NullPointerException
Class = com.ac.jdbc.ConnectionPool
261: File = ConnectionPool.java (F_Refresh_Connection)
174: File = ConnectionPool.java (F_Get_Pooled_Connection)
85: File = ConnectionPool.java (F_Get_Connection)
65: File = ConnectionPool.java (F_Get_Connection)
154: File = PoolManager.java (getConnection)
102: File = GEN_GEN_Database_Functions.java (F_Check_User_Login)
213: File = GEN_0005fGEN_0005fUser_0005fLogin$jsp.java
The application runs fine in local environment with Tomcat 4.1.18. In local environment I have added these mssql*.jar files in <tomcat home>\common\lib folder.

The jsp and class file folders are same in both local and online environments.

What's going wrong? What is the solution for this? Is this a problem with Tomcat 4?

Rgds,

vebs

A couple of things are probably happening:
1. The server is not running (Hopefully it is!)
2. SQL Server does not have TCP/IP enabled - Check this in the network utility
3. Ping the IP address - Does it return?
4. The URL - IP address / Servername is incorrect.
These would be a good place to start. It would not be a database, username, or password problem because you could not even connect to the server... It is not a driver problem because your driver is recognized. I would say that most likely, it is your URL or connection string... Could you post an example of the connection string you are using?

Hi, I have the same problem when I use tomcat to connect SQL Server 2000 running on another machine.
Any idea?
