Hi Emmanuel,

Mike told us he uses a Mac, so I think there's little chance that he 
uses a custom installed JVM on his box and besides, Tomcat has to read 
the configuration files before it can even know what driver to use. If 
it can't find the required class, an error message like 'Cannot load 
JDBC driver class 'org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver'' would be issued.

Then again, your right that it's better to actually know what JVM you're 
using, even if it's just to rule out that possibillity.
