My understand is that tomcat needs
org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.BasicDataSourceFactory which is only present in
tomcat-dbcp.jar. I was wondering the same, i.e if the commons package was a
replacement. However, it seems that by default tomcat looks for that
org.apache.tomcat.xxxx classes, I am not sure where that is configured (maybe
hardcoded?). I couldn't find any references in the configurations files.

Also another possible problem is that legacy applications rely on that class in
the configuration.

Finally, since the tomcat-dbcp.jar has a difference namespace than the commons
one, is there a risk in leaving it there? Using the commons is probably a
better idea, and it might only require some extra configuration by default
