I have an app that I just upgraded to 1.1 final from RC1, removing the old jars, installing the new ones, and I am having serious issues getting it to even start. It worked before.

My datasource part of the struts-config.xml file is:

The exception I get when loading the first page (which does not require data access), is:

I'm stumped. I downloaded 1.1 final and installed the Jars, are there others from commons I should install as well? Is there an error in the config above?
Thank you for any pointers,
