Does any one know exactly where to place and how to configure JAR files that are to be used by JSP/Servlet web applications.

I have tried these locations and nothing happens. do i need to update any XML files or classpaths.

C:\Tomcat5\common\lib\
C:\Tomcat5\common\classes\

C:\Tomcat5\shared\lib\
C:\Tomcat5\shared\classes\

Web App lives in..
E:\Projects\GSF\Web\WEB-INF\Servelt1.java

I can place in but I want a shared area, not specefic to an application.
E:\Projects\GSF\Web\WEB-INF\lib\

Thanks in advance

This should really be moved to the Tomcat forum.

Either $CATALINA_HOME/shared/lib or $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib should work (the difference between the two is subtle and not relevant to your specific question). I put such jars in /shared/lib.

Btw



why are you putting java files in WEB-INF?

Like Bear says, this forum is form Servlets questions. Your question is specific to Tomcat, and we happen to have a Tomcat forum here, so I am going to move this thread to that forum.

Thanks
