In a web application you customarily place the jar files either in the servlet container's library folder (for jars that will be shared across multiple web apps) or the WEB-INF/lib folder of your web app.

Hi Bear,

you are right. But my program will run when it reads jar files from c:\program files\open office\ xx.jar. I tried to put all my required open office jar in web-inf\lib folder.

I am getting the error like this access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission read)

That doesn't look like a problem with the JAR. It's telling you that you don't have permission to access the system property. Is this at the client or server side? It's likely that a setting in your policy file is restricting access.
