hi all,
I'm new to struts. Currently I'm making a web apps with WSAD and DB2 using struts. Now I need to change the database from using DB2 to mysql and I have no idea how the <data-source> in the struts-config should be. Can someone help me.

Thanks.

My experience with the Struts datasource is that it's nothing but trouble, and that you should avoid using it.

The best practice is to set up a datasource through your application server and then access it in your application through a JNDI lookup. Since you're using WSAD, look in the help documentation and you will find a lot of good information about how to set up a datasource.

This link gives some information specifically about WSAD and MYSQL.
