For web application you need to have the driver (.jar) files inside WEB-INF\lib directory.

That is all useless. Web applications do not pay any attention whatsoever to the command line class path.

Are you using container-managed connection pooling? If not, you should be. But if not, then placing the jar file in WEB-INF/lib should work. If it's not, your web app is likely not configured correctly. Does it look correct in the Tomcat Manager application?
