Place the jar file containing Oracle database implementation classes under
<TOMCAT_HOME>\common\lib rather than WEB-INF\lib directory specific to the project.

Also I found the installer version of (that ends with .exe) Tomcat 5.5.17 to have some strange problems. Try the .zip version which will avoid those.
