Servlet fails to initalize on first call

Servlet fails to initalize on first call

Post by Ql8a » Sat, 15 Aug 1998 04:00:00

I've written several small servlets
('') but keep getting an
error the first time i call the servlet from a browser; however, when I
refresh the servlet, it works fine, and continues to work fine until the
servlet is stopped.

  Ql8a: sorry! The Database didn't load! System: java.sql.SQLException:
No suitable Driver

The section of code that initializes the database is as follows:

public void init(ServletConfig conf) throws ServletException {

  try {
    con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:D8aTest");
    selectStatement = con.createStatement();
    deleteStatement = con.prepareStatement("delete from users where
Name=?");  // Ql8a: This works for 'chars' such as Name but not for
  }  // end try
  catch (Exception e) {                // (ClassNotFoundException and
    throw(new UnavailableException(this, "Ql8a: Sorry! The Database
didn't load! System: " + e));  // Throw an UnvailableException

Quote:}   // end public void init(ServletConfig conf)

Does anyone know why this is happening?

much thanks



1. Calling a Servlet from another Servlet


I am trying to call a method of a servlet that is not called directly.
When I try to obtain a reference to thar servlet, I get an exception
whose message is the name of the intended servlet.

PrincipalServlet ps = (PrincipalServlet)


Exception: PrincipalServlet

What is the problem?
