Nothing that's inside of WEB-INF will be served to a client, so that won't work. It's best to keep the classes and/or jar files in the same directory as the HTML file containing the applet tag.
Applets are no different in Tomcat than in any other J(2)EE-compliant webapp. What works for Tomcat also works for JBoss, WebLogic, JOnAS, etc.
An applet is (preferably) packaged in one or more Java JAR files that are downloaded to the client.
The key word there is downloaded.
As Ulf pointed out, WEB-INF and its directories aren't suitable, since aything you put under WEB-INF can't be downloaded. [ September 26, 2008: Message edited by: Tim Holloway ]
