Connecting to Visibroker server from Tomcat

I'm running a Visbroker CORBA server which I can connect to just fine when I start a client using Visibroker's "vbj" program. My understanding is that this program calls java, but first adds a *lot* of properties (-D) to the command-line and libraries to the classpath.

However, if I try to access the same server from within a web application (which is started by Tomcat), I get an exception:

I'm using the same code in each case to connect to the server, so my guess is that Tomcat doesn't have all the libraries (and/or properties) it needs in order to connect, whereas these are automatically configured when vbj is used.

Currently, the only Visibroker libraries I've got on Tomcat's classpath are vbjclientorb.jar and vbjorb.jar. Any ideas what else I need in order to fix this?

Thanks in Advance,

I agree. Here's the link:
