Hello,

I have a problem in that Tomcat does not seem to be recognising my DB Driver. I have tried linking a global data source to my application as well as adding a project specific one with no luck. Here is some of my files:




I also have my DB drivers in the commons/lib file. I know the connect string works fine because I can access the DB from Eclipse when writing standard Java code.

This seems common problem and I have been searching Google for the last 3 hours but nothing I have tried has fixed my problem.

I am using Tomcat 5.5 and J2EE 5. I am creating the links and resources in Tomcat admin.

I don't get any logs or stacktrace, the only error I get is as follows in the returned JSP page:


DataSource Example
Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL 'null'


And the console output below

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers




I am using ojdbc14.jar driver and as I mentioned it is in commons/lib

Think it should be

oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleConnectionPoolDataSource

instead of

oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

Sounds logical, I can't test it until later though. Thanks for your time.
