Hi! all,
In one of my Servlets if I have the JDBC connection in the doget method it connects and the connection stays till the program completion, But if I have it in the servlets init block,
and do some database operation in the doget method , the connection is lost and the connection pointer is pointing to null,
Can anybody tell me why is this happening.
Thanks in Advance

In all probability, the connection variable is going out of scope.
Check for the scope of the variable.
If that is alright, then I could help you if u give additional input and the code.
