    Other notes:
    • Do not use ODBC with tomcat. The JDBC-ODBC bridge is not production worthy and if you ask a question about it, everyone will tell you to not use it.
    • If you use the oracle thin driver, be sure to rename it to a jar file from a zip file. Tomcat only automagically loads files ending in .jar placed in a lib directory. It ignores all other file extensions.
