I am having problems connecting to my database since i upgraded to tomcat 5.5 (from 5.0).
It seems like 5.5 resource factory is configured a bit different with the resource tag. instead of <parameter> elements within <resource> i now specify through attributes to <resource>.
Unfortunately this didnt fix it. I still get the exception:

It looks like your url parameter isn't picking up.
This is a resource tag that I use to connect to an Oracle database.
(It is case sensitive).




Also...

I store all my application parameters in a context.xml.

This doesn't sound like your problem, but if you use context.xml files,
in 5.0.x; you would store these in ${TOMCAT_HOME}/webapps.
in 5.5.x; you now place them in ${TOMCAT_HOME}/conf/Catalina/localhost
