Need help on servlet on Tomcat

I am trying to deploy a servlet on Tomcat 3.2.2. The servlet uses an instance of another class which in turn uses a JAR file. My question is - where should I keep the .class file and the JAR file on Tomcat? Also, do I need to change my classpath also? My other servlets are running fine but they do not involve anyother classes.
An early reply would be appreciated.

Keep your classes in ../war/web-inf/classes dir and your jar files in ../war/web-inf/lib dir. set your classpath as per your requirement before starting your Tomcat.

"Mike D",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
