Please help!. Error loading JDBC Driver in WTE

Hello All,
I have been fighting a very annoying bug
in WTE( Websphere Test Environment) which is
part of VAJ3.5. Yes! Unfortunately my company
is still in WAS3.5 days and we have not migrated
to WAS4.0 yet.
All was working fine in VAJ till a couple
of days ago. All of a sudden, when I start my
WTE, the servlet engine fails to load the db2
driver.
I have tried all kinds of things
but it SIMPLY REFUSES TO GO AWAY!. Could anybody
please shed some light on this?. or Have anybody
else experienced the same problem?. I am
listing below the exact stack trace :
STACK TRACE:

SOLUTION 1:
**********
It was posted in the javaranch a while back.
a.) close VAJ
b.) Rename the db2driver.zip to something else.
C.) Bring up VAJ.
d.) Rename the db2driver.zip back to its original name
e.) start WTE
THIS DIDN'T WORK!
SOLUTION 2:
**********
Reinstall VAJ 3.5.
THIS DIDN'T WORK!
SOLUTION 3:
**********
May be the db2 driver was bad. So I replaced it
THIS DIDN'T WORK!
aLL Classpaths are pointing to the right db2driver.zip.
Thanks
