Hello. if anybody has a minute, this is driving me crazy. I configured a servlet in Tomcat 6 last year to query an Oracle database. It worked. I just revisited it, nothing has changed, and now I get this error...

org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.SQLNestedException: Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL "null"

Here's what I have...

--------------------------------------- %TOMCAT_HOME%/conf/Catalina/localhost/APP2.xml -----------------------------------------

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<Context displayName="WebApp2" docBase="C:/apache-tomcat/webapps/APP2" path="/EPS2" workDir="work\Catalina\localhost\APP2" debug="0" privileged="true">

<Resource name="jdbc/APP2Train" type="javax.sql.DataSource"/>

<ResourceParams name="jdbc/APP2Train">



ojdbc14.jar is in %TOMCAT_HOME%/lib

Is there anything I am missing? It was working like 11 months ago and I can't figure out why it can't find the Oracle driver from the APP2.xml. Thank you very much for any help.

Also, i run standalone...

java -cp .;ojdbc14.jar APP2Standalone

with this...


and it successfully connects, performs SQL, etc. So something seems amiss in the Tomcat configuration. i've tried everything. Thank you.
