Driver conflict

Hello all,

I use Tomcat. If I put a JDBC driver into Tomcat's lib folder, and another in the lib folder of my webapp will there be a conflict ? Is there a rule by which one of the drivers always gets loaded first ?

Thanks in advance,

The one in WEB-INF/lib takes precedence, unless you're using a container-managed DataSource.
