The three tiers are:
Database servers: This tier consists of SQL database servers, typically running on high-performance workstations. It contains all the database data, metadata, and referential integrity rules required by the application. This tier typically is inside the corporate firewall and can provide a layer of security in addition to that provided by the WWW server. Netscape Enterprise Server supports the use of ODBC, DB2, Informix, Oracle, and Sybase database servers. Netscape FastTrack Server supports only ODBC. For further information about the LiveWire Database Service, see Part 3, "LiveWire Database Service."

dbadmin sample application. For more information, see the administrator's guide for your web server.
If your server is not using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the user name and password for the Application Manager are transmitted unencrypted over the network. An intruder who intercepts this data can get access to the Application Manager. If you use the same password for your administration server, the intruder will also have control of your server. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not use the Application Manager outside your firewall unless you use SSL. For instructions on how to turn on SSL for your server, see the administrator's guide for your web server.
In order to use Java classes in LiveConnect, you need to set up the server's CLASSPATH. For a complete description of this procedure, refer to the Programmer's Guide to Servlets and the Netscape Enterprise Server Administrator's Guide.
