Webservice with JDBC

Below code works fine when I run this as a stand alone appli cation.
            Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
However, when I expose this as a operation in a webervice, it throws below error  java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

I am trying this with the apache, I have exposed this as a webservce.
Any suggestions for this. I tried even DriverManager.registerDriver (new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver())
it does not work even for this. Both of them are working fine when I run them as stand alone on Eclipse, when I espose it as websevice it does not work.

Any suggestions/

if you are using tomcat or jboss, you need to add the oracle jar files (ojdbc.jar) in the lib folder of server

Do you have path to classes12.jar included in your CLASSPATH? It's something like that:
\yourOraHome\jdbc\lib\classes12.jar;
