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.(ConnectionPool.java:40)
at BookStore.loginServlet.service(loginServlet.java:65)


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.
.;C:\jdk1.3.1_04\lib\tools.jar;
C:\j2sdkee1.3.1\lib\j2ee.jar;
C:\oracle\ora90\jdbc\lib\classes111.zip;
C:\projects\jakarta-Tomcat-4.0\bin\bootstrap.jar
I changed classes111.zip to classes12.zip 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
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
