So I was implementing the java code:
import java.sql.Connection; import java.sql.ResultSet; import java.sql.Statement; import org.apache.tomcat.jdbc.pool.DataSource; import org.apache.tomcat.jdbc.pool.PoolProperties;
and the import was throwing the class not found error. I thought "WTH -- I am using Apache 7". As it turns out, I had to go to the properties, and add the Apache Tomcat Library (not the jars but the libraries) in the Project Build Path. Problem solved. Hope this helps someone.
