I am trying to use the McKoi database for my application. The instruction at the McKoi website says: "If you are embedding the complete Mckoi SQL database engine in to your application then you must include the 'mckoidb.jar' jar archive in your application classpath."

What does the application classpath mean? Does it mean that I have to put the 'mckoidb.jar' under the AppName/WEB-INF/lib directory?

If you're writing a web app that's what I'd be doing, unless you want it to be somewhere reachable by all apps ob the server.

If you are using container-manager connection pooling and the jar file contains the driver, you will need to place it in the container's "common" area. For Tomcat that would we $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
