Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0/JDBC driver configuration?
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2001 18:08:49 GMT
Take a look at the JNDI howto in the TC 4 web site.  It does a reasonably 
good job of describing how to set things up.

For the location of classes12.jar, there are three place it could be placed:
WEB-INF/lib of your web app for use by that app only
$CATALINA_BASE/lib for use by all apps, but not TC 4
$CATALINA_BASE/common/lib for use by all apps and TC 4

Of course wherever you put the jar, you'll have to bounce the service to have 
it pick up the jar in the new location.  CLASSPATH is ignored in TC 4 because 
it caused a lot of headaches in previous versions of tomcat.
