Hi all,
I have Oracle installed in my prompt and my driver exists there. OracleDriver.
Now I have a web application installed in my server and my machine is mapped to the server to I:
We have tomcat installed here.
I tried in working a sample standalone java app from I: It is working.
But my servlet is not seeing the driver installed.
So I guess Tomcat is not seeing my JDBC driver.
Any one please tell me how to configure this on Tomcat ?
Any links also welcome..

did you set your classpath to include the new jdbc driver that you have installed?
What is the Exception number/message?
I have found this link to Oracle a very useful one.
At the bottom of the page there is a section on Installation Questions and Error Messages. Also, since your just getting started, this link on error messages might be useful too.

The prob is that Tomcat in our server is not able to recognise my driver in my machine. I put the file in /lib directory of the tomcat.
i added that in tomcat, restarted the server. Still it doesn't work.
I agree. Here's the link:
