Tomcat appears to be setting the variables in web.xml, I can call the servlet from a browser
by its mapping in web.xml. There are no other any 
errors in catalina.out apart from the exception below.

Let me clarify....
The poolman.xml file is the configuration file for one of my libraries ,(poolman.jar)
poolman.jar is calls poolman.xml (Supposed to be anywhere on the classpath)
As I said before this works on 3.2.3
