  Creating a Web Application with Ant and Tomcat 4
Subject:   app won't run

Nice article, but I'm having a problem.


I am able to build the application, but get the same error that someone else posted (i included the error in all its below)


I copied the MySQL JDBC driver (mysql-connector-java-3.0.8-stable-bin.jar) to my /usr/local/tomcat/common/lib directory, so I think that's not the problem.


Here's my set-up:
OS: Mac OS X 10.2.4
Tomcat: 4.1.24
Ant: 1.5.3-1
MySQL: 4.0.13
Connector/J: 3.0.8-stable


Any ideas what the peoblem could be?
