problems with tomcat-4.0 and Oracle

when running the following code in my servlet.
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
I get the following error :
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle/jdbc/driver/OracleDriver
at BookStore.ConnectionPool.(
at BookStore.loginServlet.service(

The code does work for my standalone applications so the problem
must be with running my oracle8i with tomca-4.0t, or even my path settings.
I changed to still get the same problem
Thanks for any help.

As I recall, Tomcat 4 changed the way that servlets find classes - there should be a discussion of this in the online documentation.

I have solved the problem, what I did was to place classes111.jar into WEB-INF/lib directory
