I do not know whether i have included everything properly or i need to modify the parameter enties.
As far as starting four year old thread is concerned, i think the age of the thread should not matter as long as there is fruitful technical discussion.
My intension was to use this thread as a refernce for the new discussion and problem i am facing.
But if it is against the forum policies then i have no problem in starting a new thread.

You must place your classes12.zip file (the oracle drivers) into the <CATALINA_HOME>/common/lib directory. You should also rename it classes12.jar



Even i was facing the classdefinitionnotfound error with tomcat4.
So i followed the above suggested steps. But still it didn't work.
Finally i extract the classes12.zip. and i placed the 2 folders oracle and javax inside web-inf\classes. Then it started working.
Can anybody explain the reason behind this..
thanks

Ideally u shud not put any jar file inside ur jdk/lib.. ,unless the jar name contains the word java.
comming back to ur problem..try following ,
Extract the mysql.jar inside web-inf\classes of ur appication and try executing the ur class.
