Hi,

did you try to copy the `activation.jar' in the common/lib/ (or
common/endorsed/ if newer version then in JRE) directory? This path is
_always_ included in the CLASSPATH by the startup scripts...

I have there JDBC drivers, xalan, xerces (in the common/endorsed-) and
it works fine.

And the second benefit of this directories is platform independence...
Simply you copy tomcat directory to UNIX or other Windoze with no
Control Panel hacking or other problems...

PETR
