The combination of JDK 1.3.1 and Tomcat 4.0 seems to work better. Java is 
such a pain... :-)

Yes, I'll add passwords if I set up OpenCMS on a production server, but 
right now, I'm just toying with it at home :-) As for permissions, I left 
all the defaults.

Turns out Joshua had it right: Changing " jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/" 
into " jdbc:mysql://mylinux.acme.com:3306/" solved the issue. Thx a bunch 
for the prompt answer!

BTW, and this is not a criticism of OpenCMS, but I really don't think using 
a web browser as the client is such a good idea, because we're a long way 
from offering a UI that is as good as eg. Outlook, which users are used to. 
Is there any project to develop a cross-platform dedicated client for OpenCMS?

I'm really looking into a non-proprietary, no-pain alternative to Lotus 
Notes to build knowledge databases, and so far, no luck. I've looked at 
various tools like GreyMatter, MovableType, UserLand stuff, Zope, and 
FogCreek's CityDesk, but I'm still not quite excited by what I saw.

Thx again
