I am trying to deploy a web application with MySql as the backend database, and I was wondering where should I put the MySql driver class files. Can someone please tell me in which directory? Thank you.

Don't put them anywhere. Leave them in the jar file they are distributed in and put that jar file into the web application's WEB-APP/lib directory.
