Are you using the JDBCRealm stuff or just using Oracle via JDBC from your servlets?
If the later is true then you don't need to do anything special in web.xml or server.xml.

Just make sure that your oracle jdbc driver is somewhere Tomcat will see it
(in your <mywebapp>/WEB-INF/lib or in the tomcat lib directory).  And make sure you
are specifying
the correct class when you load the JDBC driver.  JDBC accesss doesn't have much to do with
Tomcat itself other than the classpath for the driver.
