hi guys..
when i used iplanet4.0 for develop a web application including jsp and servlet,i include the Oracle JDBC driver classes12.zip in the jvm classpath of iplanet,it works,today,under tomcat,i use a war to deploy my web application and i put the classes12.zip under WEB-INF/lib/,the database connection could not be got,after some debugs,i found if i change the classes12.zip to classes12.jar,it works again..
could some one else tell me why???
