Your current problem is caused by the fact that jars aren't picked up when the classpath points to a folder that contains them. You need to point the classpath to each individual jar file, or put the jar files in the lib/ext folder of your virtual machine.

I have downloaded Oracle's latest jodbc6.jar and my CLASSPATH points to c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_40\lib

If you define a CLASSPATH environment variable for Tomcat, for example, that's not going to help, since Tomcat builds its internal classpaths from the Tomcat lib directory, the WEB-INF subdirectories of deployed webapps, and other pre-defined places.

And we are in the process of migrating. I have the virtual machine file for our new web server. I plan to install it over the Christmas break and start testing. Java 8, Tomcat 8, MariaDB, all the fun toys...

Despite all the abuse that Java has taken in the security arena in recent times, Java was, in fact, designed from Day 1 to be secure. One of the things that was done to ensure that security was that mechanisms exists to keep people from just dropping classes into the JRE's core classpath. Only resources that have been properly authorized will be recognized.
