A common problem with Oracle drivers is that they are contained in a .zip rather than a .jar file and don't get loaded. (and therefore aren't available) Make sure the driver file ends with .jar and is somewhere your app can see it (note this does not necessarily mean the classpath) ClassPath issues may be separate and would depend on the app server you are using.

"yogi", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp. We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please edit your profile and select a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks. Dave

There isn't a need to import the driver in your JSP page using JSTL; JSTL takes care of this automatically. (It's not the original poster's tag handler but JSTL's, in this case.) You will, however, need to ensure that Oracle's drivers (e.g., classes12.zip) are present in your web application's WEB-INF/lib. You may need to rename this file to a JAR file in order for Tomcat to recognize it.

"yogi programmer", Your name is still not valid. yogi, yogi programmer and yogeshnaravane are all invalid. It must be two words and must not be obviously ficticious. A suggestion: yogi naravane would be valid (I'm not sure what your last name is, this is just an option) Thanks. Dave
