ClassNotFoundException--DB2 Driver

Hi,
I am using Apache Tomcat4.0.4 to connect to DB2 UDB7.2 database.
When I try to use the COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver it is throwing the ClassNotFoundException.
I checked whether the class in the application classpath or not by using the
javap COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver
It is listing the methods of that class.If I connect to database without using Apache it is working fine.
Can anybody please tell me how to use the above driver in Apache Tomcat 4.0.4
Thanks in Advance

I got the solution for the above problem.The Tomcat class path is overwriting the system classpath.That is the reason Tomcat is not finding the DB2driver.
