I have a basic uPortal 2.5.1 config. that builds and deploys fine, the problem is on the initial page, I get an exception:::
java.lang.NullPointerException at org.jasig.portal.UserInstanceManager.getUserInstance(UserInstanceManager.java) at org.jasig.portal.PortalSessionManager.doGet(PortalSessionManager.java)
After tracing all of the config files and the portal.log file the database I am using (MySql) is not being reached... It seems that the driver parameters are not being translated correctly. My mysql-connection-3.1.10.jar file is in the app server's (TOMCAT) common/lib and my WEB-INF/lib classpaths. There is no problem with the database creation / population either.
I checked the Ja-Sig site and found ONE entry on this saying to reload the app server and/or reload the uPortal instance from the tomcat manager console (did all of these and still get the same results) any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, it was an issue with build.properties where my Apache Tomcat version was in the 5.5 series and required uncommenting a uportal55.xml config line.
