Re: Problem in Loading ORACLE THIN DRIVERS in LINUX - TOMCAT with STRUTS

The classes12.zip that contains Oracle's thin driver is a "zip" file rather than a "jar" file. While a jar's compression format is the same, there is no manifest in a zip file. So I suspect that the ClassNotFound exception is due to an inspection of the manifest, and the lack thereof produces the error. To correct, unzip the classes12.zip and jar up the resultant files into a classes12.jar. Put this into your classpath. While I solved a similar problem using these steps, it was using Caucho's Resin without Struts, but it seemed to work. Good luck.
