i have found various topics on this error when it says
Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL 'null' and i too got the same error. ijust need to get a solution for this so thats why i am writing in detail what i am doing
i logged in tomcat manager and create a datasource here are teh parameters
JNDI Name-jdbc/myoracle
DataSource URL-jdbc racle:thin:@
JDBC Driver Class- oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver (i put ojdbc.jar file in the tomcat common\lib folder, BTW i also put classes12.jar file since i was also trying to use some other driver but still error.)
user name : XXX
password : XXX

Here is my code which is use to get hte context
Context ctx = new InitialContext();
if(ctx == null )
throw new Exception("Boom - No Context");
DataSource ds =(DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/myoracle");
if (ds != null) {
Connection conn = ds.getConnection();

The error occurs when i call ds.getConnection() and throws up the following message. which i dont understand why???
Any help.
i failed to understand where can be the problem
There is one more thing i wanted to ask, since i am using IntelliJ and i define the context in intelliJ for example sturtsEx and it works. i wanted to know how does Tomcat knows about it since i never manually created the context in the server.xml file. The IDE takes care of everthing. Will appreciate if some one can explain me how tomcat does that
