Subject RE: JDBC + Tomcat NT Service
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
Hi Randy,
Thanks! I'm sorry I failed to mention that I had put the jar files in the 
lib directory as well. I don't have a problem loading the drivers when I run 
Tomcat normally but I do when I run it as a service - the drivers just 
refuse to load. The JDBC drivers are not the only jars in the lib directory. 
I've got some other jars that I have no problems using even while running 
Tomcat as a Win2K service.
I guess someone has got to check this out. It's strange, but who knows I 
just might be doing something wrong.
