This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I created a \lib directory under the WEB-INF directory and placed my freetds_jdbc.jar file there. However when I run my program it never finds the jar file. My connection object is always set to null!! I tried placing my .jar file in every /lib directory but the outcome is still the same. Do I need to modify some classpath variable in order for this to work???
Placing the jar in WEB-INF/lib should have worked. You can also use tomcat/common/lib to share jar files accross all webapps.

placed it in there too, but it still didnt work. I placed the jdbc classes(unjared) in the web-inf\classes directory and it worked. Do I need to add something to the web.xml file in order for it to find the .jar??
Hai john, Put all yr jars at <% tomcat home%>\lib OR <% tomcathome %>\common\lib ! After doing this please check yr classpath - enviornment variable ! and add this path ( of lib or common\lib) there , just before everything ! Regards Dharmin (SCJP2)
