I put my JAR file inside WEB-INF/lib, but my classes are not getting found. However, when i unzipped classes into WEB-INF/classes/, it works. What's up?

Some old versions of Tomcat do not include WEB-INF/lib/*.jar in WebApp classpath. You may handle it updating to a newer version of tomcat or (as you did) unpacking jars into WEB-INF/classes/.

[Get the latest version of Tomcat (currently 4.0.2) from http://jakarta.apache.org -Alex]
