I am having a problem getting iPlanet Application Server 6.0 SP3 to load the Oracle Connection Pool Driver - oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleConnectionPoolDataSource I am trying to access it through JNDI and that seems to be working, but when the actual class try's to load I get the following error: java.sql.SQLException: A. Couldn't load or create 3rd party class: oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleConnectionPoolDataSource at com.netscape.server.jdbc.Driver.connect(Unknown Source).... Here is the code that it is bombing on: ... InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("jdbc/" + dsName); dbConn = ds.getConnection(); ... Notes: I have the oracle zip file classes111.zip (which contains the driver class) at the end of the app server classpath. (Took it out of the WAR file) Do I have a classpath issue, should the WAR/EAR contain the classes111.zip file, should zip file not be located at the end of the classpath??? Please help!
