Actually, the problem with the cast was I had a typo in the path for the jar 
file when I added it to the CLASSPATH.  I can get it to compile now.

But back to my original question:

Where is the actual source to this "re-packaged" class???  I cannot find it in 
the downloaded source tree.

Which version of commons.dbcp was re-packaged?

If I look at the commons.dbcp source can I be absolutely sure it's the same 
version of the class in the jar file?

Thanks again.
