JSP and MySQL?

  Asked By: Chisisi    Date: Sep 25    Category: Java    Views: 589

I'm thinking of making a web-shop as a college
project, for a small music shop based on their current
mail-order catalog. I particularly want to use Java (JSP),
and not PHP, although the best database is probably
MySQL. Does anyone know if it is possible to use JSP
with MySQL, or are there any significantly better

MySQL and Java play well together. There is a
JDBC driver for mysql  at
http://mmmysql.sourceforge.net/ which is very good. Java JDBC is
an abstraction
layer for communicating with databases in a
database-independant fashion.

Actually Wrox Press "Professional JSP"
_2/002-5232411-8070453<br><br>is a great book to start with (get the second
edition). It shows you where to download MySQL. It shows
you how to set up a Tomcat server for working with
JSP's. It goes through the basics of JSP's up to the
more advanced stuff like JSP Taglibs.<br><br>It also
has good sources to get the info.<br><br>Stephen
