Loading JDBC Driver with Custom Class Loader

Hi,
I am using a custom class loader to load jars. I am trying to load drivers using this custom class loader.
custmClassLoader.loadClass(driver).newInstance();
DriverManager.getDriver(url);
custmClassLoader.loadClass(driver).newInstance();
registers the driver successfully.
The custmClassLoader object delegates the searches its repository and if the class is not found, delegates the work to the System Classloader (like Tomcat).
Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Praveen.

java.sql.DriverManager doesn't handle JDBC drivers that are loaded from a custom classloader. To get around this I wrote my own driver manager. You can have a look at it here
