You're right.  I renamed the oracle jdbc jar file from ojdbc14.jar to
ojdbc-14.jar, and it all started working.  That is a pretty touchy error
source, because it was also preventing postgresql from working.  I
couldn't even get a data-entry form (page 2 in the wizard) for derby,
but once I changed the oracle driver name, everything worked.

One comment, the db pool wizard has fixed fields for each data item:
host, port, ...  It would be nice to have a single box (as an alternate)
where you could enter the entire url string.  I've got a complex string,
with failovers, etc from our DBA, and there was no way to directly enter
it.  I had to save the deployment plan and edit it.

Thanks, Aaron.  You saved me and my bacon.

Can you see if the server console output shows any errors, or if not, if
the server log file at var/log/geronimo.log shows any errors? 
Usually if a screen shows up blank there was an exception that prevented
it from rendering and the stack trace is in the log.

Again, in 1.0, this may be caused by a badly-named JAR in the
repository.  Or it may be something else.  :)
