Thin Driver not working

Hi! Friends,
Am trying to use Oracle Thin Driver in a java bean which establishes a connection. But it is giving ClassNotFoundException. I have placed the jar file containing the Oracle Driver in the classpath. The same connection code worked fine with standalone application as well as 9iAS.
The snippet is as follows:
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc racle:thin:@ip_of_DBServer ort_no:server","usernm","passwd");

Any kind of help ?

Where exactly have you placed the classes12.jar file ? Did you try out placing it in TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib folder ?

Or place you classes12.jar into /WEB-INF/lib/ directory.
I agree. Here's the link:
