Ok - You just volunteered as an expert (anyone else can volunteer too). 
I want to just do a simple dynamic jsp page.  Take one field from one 
row in an sql table and display its value on a web page - tomcat 3, 4 or 
5 (I've tried them all), mysql or postgres, java 1.4.2. Tell me what 
moving parts I need and a rough outline of code. (all I need is someway 
to connect to a db) and where they go in the file system. (or point me 
to a tutorial that actually works). The examples included with tomcat 
don't seem to understand the concept of a database-backed website.
