Subject Re: jdbc driver in web-inf/lib instead of shared/lib
Date Thu, 25 Jan 2007 13:18:48 GMT
The connection to the database goes through a datasource. The datasource
is not part of the war and actually gets loaded *before* the war gets
loaded. Which mean that you can't have your driver in the war file
itself. This is generic J2EE behavior, not specific to jUDDI. Hope this
