I try to run www.icescrum.org on my Tomcat 7 on Ubuntu 12.04 with OpenJDK.
I have installed Tomcat with apt-get and also I have installed the libmysql-java package. On starting Tomcat it reports on a stacktrace log, that the mySQL connector is not found (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").
So I have try to create a symlink in Tomcats lib dir to the jar file and try to modify the properties of the search paths:
The JDBC mySQL Jar is stored under /usr/share/java with two symlinks, I have tried to create a symlink from Tomcats lib dir (/usr/share/tomcat7/lib) to ../../java/mysql.jar but the mySQL is also not loaded. The CATALINA_HOME is set to /usr/share/tomcat7 and the CATALINA_BASE is /var/lib/tomcat7, so imho it should be worked.
How can I create a working IceScrum with mySQL and a shared mySQL connector?
