When I am starting my application, I get this error.
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource
I have included the latest commons-dbcp-1.4.jar in WEB-INF\lib folder and added to java build path.
Hi Siva, Do not know much about your exact problem but it looks like the version of your jar doesn't have the class being looked up. My reference is from here. Try opening the jar file and see if the class file is there in the intended package structure.

Thanks Shankar for your reference!
I did verify to make sure that referenced class is available in that jar. I am particularly using commons-dbcp-1.4.jar, since I am using Java 6. As per apache, 1.4 version is developed for Java 6.
I am also understood from my collegue that he does not face this issue. But he is using WAS 6.1 and I am using WAS 7.
