My webapp crashes on tomcat8 when trying to connect to the database connection pool with:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp2.BasicDataSourceFactory

The complete package org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp2 is indeed missing from /usr/share/tomcat8/tomcat-dbcp.jar. It does exist in the tomcat-dbcp.jar in the offical binary package, so this is not an upstream issue.

Also, the service file references in After=, which should be removed. has been obsolete for a long time.
This task depends upon

About dbcp classes: the Jar is in the lib directory but as you say on the title, it lacks half of the classes. This is the result of the build from sources. This is now fixed.

Thanks for the catch.
