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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
