The solution for such error was:

I changed the  $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/catalina.properties and i add db2jcc4.jar to tomcat.util.scan.DefaultJarScanner.jarsToSkip property value.
It is used to turn off classpath scanning (which is used across JavaEE 6 specs implementations).


i found the solution here
db2 - Including DB2JCC4 in Tomcat 7:
