  I have to disagree. Having at $TOMCAT_HOME/lib and then
restarting worked fine
  for us.

  Betreff: Classpath Woe

    hi, i've been having the same problem as several others here -- tomcat
can't find my oracle jdbc drivers no matter where they're located. i placed
a copy of (for oracle) in every conceivable place with no luck
and finally decided tomcat doesn't like class packages if they're zipped. my
fix is to unzip and re-jar...(i.e. simply renaming the zip file didn't work,

    for oracle:

    1. unzip the original file ( or into your
$TOMCAT_HOME/lib directory. this will place two directories there: oracle
and javax. i didn't need javax so i threw it out

    2. open a shell and cd to $TOMCAT_HOME/lib

    3. jar up the oracle directory using  "jar cvf oracle.jar oracle." you
can name the jar file whatever you want.

    4. restart tomcat

    that worked for me!
