I am trying to connect to a mysql database using a cgi program(perl program) through tomcat.

But I am getting an error like 'could not connect to localhost:3306 \tcp:IO::Socket::INET:Bad protocol tcp'.

I was able to run the cgi program (perl) from command prompt also i could run a different perl program without database connectivity statement through tomcat.

So the problem is like i cannot connect to database through cgi when run with tomcat.

Can someone please help me .... and i want 2 run it through tomcat itself not using apache httpd or anything.

Thanks in advance
