Hi, I was using Tomcat to develop a small application, where I was using OracleDriver for JDBC access. In order for the Tomcat to see the corresponding zip file(driver file), I had to unzip that file in the WEB-INF\classes directory of my application folder in the Webapps folder in side tocat installation folder. I couldn't find a way to include the original path of the driver file in the tomcat's classpath. I saw in the Tomcat's documentation that Tomcat doesn't see the system's classpath. Please let me know anyone, how can I set the classpath so that tomcat can see that file, instead of unzip in to the classes directory. Thanks Piram
Also, Tomcat 4.x doesn't use System CLASSPATH, so put your oracle jar file in the <CATALINA_HOME>/common/lib directory.
In Tomcat 3.x, this folder was <TOMCAT_HOME>/lib, but it would have also picked it up from wherever it was on your system, as long as it was in the system CLASSPATH [This message has been edited by Mike Curwen (edited December 27, 2001).]
