If you are accessing the Driver directly from you JSP page or a Servlet, the driver needs to be in the /WEB-INF/lib/ folder. If you are trying to use connection pooling, you will need to put the driver where the Application Server specifies it to go. For example, Tomcat will require it in the $TOMCAT_HOME/commons/lib/ folder.
So which is it?
