Yes, of course!!!   I had it in my head "... but this is the way I did
it before" but I had forgotten that I had copied the classes111.jar (for 8i)
into the server/lib directory.

So, this leads me to a follow up question.  I know that I've got the jar
file in the server/lib directory, is there any way to use that from my
application.  If not then I have to have the exact same jar file in my
WEB-INF/lib directory to use Oracle JDBC in my application.

Thanks very much for your help,
