We seem to have some communication issue.
But I have sinned a lot in my life, so this will probably count as redemption points.

Another try :

1) read this :
Paragraph "tomcat-users" --> important --> 6.

2) in Oracle, create the user "tomcat"

3) in your database configuration in server.xml or context.xml, replace "apps" by "tomcat".
And then tell us if this is the answer to your question, or why it is not.
