Question Can app port to Windows?


A 'consultant' delivered an application to me without checking what software platforms my ISP supports. I'm trying to determine if it can be salvaged or not. The documentation states that the database engine is MySQL and that Tomcat should be used as the JSP server.

However my ISP only supports SQL Server 2000, Windows 2000 Server, IIS 5.0 and FrontPage extensions. I know the data structures will have to be converted to SQL Server.

My question is "Can the JSP code written for the Tomcat server be hosted instead by IIS 5.0 and the FrontPage extensions?"

Sorry to be such a

Thanks

I guess not, you'll need tomcat for windows, but you can use your DB as long as the JDBC is available for it.

...and I assume there is no Tomcat for Windows? What is the JDBC?

Thx

Why there is Tomcat binaries and source for windows http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jak...se/v4.0.4/bin/
exe files are windows executables. JDBC is java database connectivity driver, look up java.sun.com, I am pretty sure there is a JDBC driver for MS SQL2000 - the only problem I find your database must reside on the same machine as your web server because JDBC for SQL2000 lacks a remote connection capability.
