Subject RE: Problem with JDBC-Connection to DB2 from Tomcat4.0.1
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2002 20:07:58 GMT
set the driver name along with the path in the classpath
eg is the driver name is in the folder d:\apache\...\web-inf
then set the classpath to d:\apache\...\web-inf\

this should work.

Subject: Problem with JDBC-Connection to DB2 from Tomcat4.0.1

Hello list,

is there anyone, who has an idea or can explain me the following situation:

My JSP-file imports a self-written class named 'Connect'. This class should
connect to DB2 with using IBM-app-driver. If I start this application, I get
a ClassNotFoundException because of the driver.

I have tried, to copy the driver to the local directory and the
WEB-INF\classes\-directory. Then Tomcat says: Can't find bundle for base

My pure java-program '' on the same computer can connect to DB2
without problems. It uses the same driver as the Tomcat-Application.

Is it possible, that Tomcat doesn't use the same CLASSPATH as the system?
And if, how can I say Tomcat, where he can find the driver? 

Many greetings
Anja Falkner
