driver class problem

I'm trying to run an application on Tomcat. It fails to run, throwing a null driver class exception. I've already copied a jar file with a Db2 driver class into Tomcat's /common/lib directory. But it still throws the same exception. What might be the problem here? (I would appreciate a detailed explanation).
The exception is:
java.sql.SQLException Cannot load JDBC driver class 'null'
at org.apache.commons.dbpc.BasicDataSource.createDataSource(...)
at org.apache.commons.dbpc.BasicDataSource.getConnection(...)

which version of Db2?
Which version of JDBC?
If JDBC2.0, did you move your JDBC2.0 using useJdbc2.0 command script?
I agree. Here's the link:
