RE: InstantDB: IDB Driver name

I would try Helge's suggestion.  Either add to the
classpath environment or modify the tomcat startup
scipt to add InstantDB to the class path.  Tomcat will
echo the classpath on startup.

It probably doesn't help to have the InstantDB jar in
context.  My experience with Tomcat is Class.forName()
fails for classes in the context unless you provide
Tomcats's class loader.
