Subject Re: want BasicDataSource from javax.sql.Datasource...
Date Tue, 29 Jun 2004 20:29:38 GMT
So if you do ds.getClass().getName() it is a BasicDataSource but a 
cast fails?

In this case you have a classloader problem.
Remove the commons-dbcp jar from WEB-INF/lib.
In most cases you only need one copy of the dbcp jar and that one is 
in the tomcat common/lib directory.
