I want to use JDBC-ODBC to access a database that stores the news entires. Only problem is that I can't figure out how to create the database, I understand how to connect and retrieve information from it, but I don't have a database.

So if anyone can help I would appreciate it.

    I can assume that you're trying to get to a database on your own server because if you don't you have to ask your hosting provider to get you a database.

    If you do run the webserver on a local server you can download MySQL from http://www.mysql.com .
    MySQL is free and if you download the "Control Center" you can easily create and drop databases, create and delete tables etc etc.

    I hope that you're using tags to create a database connection,. otherwise you're doing a lot of extra work for nothing. Try to use tags as much as you can because JSP is evolving to a language that is gonna be only tags and that means that the programmer doesn't have to use so much code as before.

    Hope this answered your question.

    If you have the standard tag library you have to use the tags.

    But if you're smart you buy a book. I used "Java Server Pages" from O'reilly. It is really good and helps you a lot when you're starting.
