I have a webservice which am running under jboss. The webservice is communicating with DB2. When I put the DB2 driver jars on the run configuration of JBoss run in eclipse they are available to my webservice.
I need to put the jars under the lib folder of my application which I keep onto my classpath and when I run the webservice on JBoss ,gives me the following exception.
I can these jars see being copied as part of war

If you are using a JBoss datasource in your application, perhaps it would be better to place the driver jars in the classpath of the JBOSS server. Some directory probably named lib or ext should be available for you to provide additional jars to the Jboss classpath.
