If the code below is taken from a servlet, then this.getInitParameter()
will look for an init-parameter element inside the <servlet> element.
To get a context parameter from a servlet, you do:
String userName = getServletContext().getInitParameter("oracleUser");

By the way, I don't remember if you mentioned what tomcat version you're
using.  But if you're using tomcat 4.x, you web.xml should be compliant
with the 2.3 spec version, not 2.2.
