It's not really a shot in the dark - it's my first guess, but having 
actually had to do this for a postgres/tomcat connection yesterday, the 
messages he's getting from tomcat don't look right.  But just in case, 
the quick and dirty option is to just turn TOMCAT_SECURITY, and if that 
works, the cleaner option is to modify the java policy files (I don't 
currently have access to that machine, but locate "catalina.policy", and 
look in there to see where the local policy files are.  Edit the 
"50user*" file, there, and copy one of the JDBC examples.
