RE: HELP! NEWBIE! PostgreSQL with Tomcat server

Hi funkymonkeypoo,

JSP or Java Server Pages allow you to embed special java like HTML within tags to create web pages.  It's the equivalent of ASP or Active Server Page in windows.  Before you can connect to your postgres database over TCP/IP, you need a driver or JDBC that I think stands for java database connection. It is my guess that postgresql.jar is the JDBC driver that JSP calls to make the connection.  You might take a look-see at the following links.
