I have a servlet under tomcat 4.01. This servlet attack a DB2 database. In fact, this servlet doesn't find the driver to connect to the DB, however my classpath is set correctly:

Must I configure another varibale in tomcat?

Put the jar containing the driver in the TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib directory. I think the documentation has a discussion about how Tomcat 4 locates library files.

If your error message is accurate, you've mistyped the drivername. Java is case-sensitive even on OS's such as Windows that aren't. Not "", but ""

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
