hi all,

i need help, my activiti installation don't work when i try to change the default db (H2) to mssql or oracle. I had read the guide many time but is not clear about this.

my sistem:
is a oracle linux.

my step:
1) installed jdk1.6
2) installed tomcat7.052 on /usr/share/apache-tomcat path (work fine)
3) downloaded activiti from main site
4) unziped the archive
5) deployed the war file (activiti-explorer.war) using the tomcat application manager (my link:
6) opened the link "" and it work (can see login page and access using kermit/kermit)

now i tried to modified the file to configure a mssql or oracle connection

7) created a blank schema on oracle db (activiti) and create a database on mssql (both tested using oracle-developper-tool)
8 ) downloaded the JDBC Driver 4.0 (sqljdbc4.jar file) from
9) downloaded the ojdbc6.jar from
10) copy and paste both file to /usr/share/apache-tomcat-7.0.52/webapps/activiti-explorer/WEB-INF/lib/
11) edited the classes/ file:

for mssql and


for oracle

12) via tomcat manager stop/start the application but none of this will work. Where am I wrong?

I can advise you to do a better step-by-step installation guide?

Thx advance
