Throughout this documentation we are using the
tomcat bundle as the installation location for the database connector. This is just an example as the connector will work under any compatible servlet container. This
documentation assumes that the
tomcat bundle is installed in c:\frevvo. We'll refer to this directory below as <frevvo-home>.
It is also appropriate to copy the driver into any location that is in the CLASSPATH of your servlet container. In a tomcat installation another . Another location would be <CATALINA_HOME>/lib.
