Hi, I found a way how to add tomcat-dbcp.jar into tomcat package in a way,
which will be accepted. However I am hesitant if such change is really needed.

My understanding of tomcat documentation is that jdbc-pool
(org.apache.tomcat.jdbc.pool.DataSourceFactory) is better replacement of
tomcat-dbcp (or commons-dbcp) and that was the reason old tomcat-dbcp.jar was

I can understood that for some compatibility reasons (one would like to have an
application running on different tomcat versions) there might be a reason to
use old tomcat-dbcp.

So I would like to clarify:

1.) Do you really need tomcat-dbcp.jar?
2.) If so, would you agree with having it in extra rpm, which won't be
installed by default? tomcat-dbcp sounds like nice name for that.
