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.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
