Hello Tomcat World! Thanks Chuck and Michael. This is the answer for Michael:
That's like you find out your car has no wheels. You said you've
manipulated Tomcat's startup script. Don't do that. Make a clean
install and it should work.

Yes, I did, a complete clean installation of Tomcat 6.0.18. I downloaded and put it into the
/opt directory. Then, I edit the catalina.properties, wich has the following sentence:
common.loader=${catalina.home}/lib,${catalina.home}/lib/*.jar

I read the link you posted me, but the comments in the catalinal.properties has no example
with "file:///" so I did not write like this. I added to this line the path to the db2 jdbc
driver. The current sentence is this
 one:
common.loader=${catalina.home}/lib,${catalina.home}/lib/*.jar,/opt/java/jdk/jre/lib/ext/*.jar

¿Is this right or do I need to include "file:///"?

Careful! :-)
I did that because one of you recommend me to do that.  Why do you say careful? Is this a
bad practice? Should I use the startup.sh ??It's not considered good practice to have a service
run as root when
there is no need to do so. The root user is very powerful, so it's
potentially dangerous expose a process run as root to the world.
Well, in this
 new phase of using Tomcat, I am not running it as root, just as common user and it's working
fine, but the DB2 connection deal is still causing me troubles.

Thanks for all. Now I need to learn how to do a pooling of connections. Any comments?
I really apreciate your time for answer me.
