Subject Re: Why tomcat 6.0.18 looks for MySQL JDBC driver to be placed in CATALINA_HOME/lib folder?
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 13:52:21 GMT

Hi Kees,

Yes. Since, I'm using the JNDO datasource the JDBC driver need to be in
$CATALINA_HOME, becase 'common' class loader looks for the JDBC driver (it
may be invoked by tomcat-dbcp.jar).
