The first question is - where did you put the Jar file? Tomcat does not use your environment CLASSPATH. Your Tomcat installation has a nice discussion of how Tomcat finds files in the webapps/tomcat-docs/class-loader-howto.html file. Bill
Thanks for your reply. I was sure I had placed it in the lib directory of my web application, but when I looked at the behest of someone here, lo, it wasn't there. Now to fix my build.xml to move the .jars when I deploy so I don't make this mistake again..
