Why can't Tomcat find my Oracle JDBC drivers in classes111.zip?
javax.servlet.ServletException : oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
Root Cause : java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle:jdbc:driver:OracleDriver
My problem was solved. I copied the Oracle Driver class file (classes111.zip) in %TOMCAT_HOME%lib directory and renamed it to classess111.jar. It worked.
Now i am able to connect to Oracle DB from TOMCAT 4.01 via Oracle JDBC-Thin Driver.
