Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL 'null'

Using Solaris 9, Tomcat 4.1.29, MySQL 3.23.49, mysql-connector-3.0.9.jar
Following directions found at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/jndi-datasource-examples-howto.html
When connecting directly to Tomcat on port 8080, all is well.
When connecting through Apache, the .jsp page is displayed, but I can't make a database connection.
A Context is created:
ctx=javax.naming.InitialContext@11931f8
A DataSource is looked up:
ds=org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource@1fb9fb3
When trying to get connection, an exception is thrown:
Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL 'null'
The following is my context:
<Context path="/DBTest" docBase="DBTest"
debug="5" reloadable="true" crossContext="true">

<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
prefix="localhost_DBTest_log." suffix=".txt"
timestamp="true"/>

<Resource name="jdbc/TestDB"
auth="Container"
type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>

<ResourceParams name="jdbc/TestDB">
<parameter>
<name>factory</name>
<value>org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSourceFactory</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>maxActive</name>
<value>100</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>maxIdle</name>
<value>30</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>maxWait</name>
<value>10000</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>username</name>
<value>myusername</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>password</name>
<value>mypassword</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>driverClassName</name>
<value>org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver</value>
</parameter>

<parameter>
<name>url</name>
<value>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/javatest?autoReconnect=true</value>
</parameter>
</ResourceParams>
</Context>

As I said, it works on port 8080, but not through Apache port 80.
Is it a permission problem somewhere, perhaps?
An httpd.conf problem?
A context problem?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
