My site just had some parameters to a class that does the rest. But when I use the same class under Forte for Java 4, CE the whole thing works just perfect. Both Tomcat and Forte are using the same jre. What is it? Is it my Tomcat? I'm using 4.1. Should I reinstall it?
Using JCo in a Tomcat Web application can be a little tricky. Make sure that you have a copy of sapjco.jar in the tomcat/common/lib directory or the tomcat/shared/lib directory (depending on Tomcat version). Also, make sure that no other pointers to sapjco.jar exist in your Tomcat startup classpath. Finally, ensure that you are using the latest version of JCo (2.0.8 or higher). If the error message indicates that you are using jco.jar, thenyou are on an older release of JCo which may explain the problems you are having in Tomcat.
