put the jdbc drivers in the classes folder of your
app like:

cp -Rf $JDBC_HOME/org $MYAPP_HOME/WEB-INF/classes

I tried this but I still get the same error...
Is there any other configuration to the web.xml?
That should do it, but I have noticed serious
performance degradation in switching from JServ
1.1.2 to Tomcat 3.2b6. I am not sure if I am missing
something in the docs, but JServ 1.1.2/GNUJsp 1.0 is
IMHO much faster (at least with the mm.mysql JDBC
driver apps I have written) If someone could point
me to some tuning tips/parameters I may have missed
in the standard docs I would really appreciate it.
