SUBJECT: Error using Oreilly's packages...?

I have my Java Servlets under /local/tomcat/webapps/hari/WEB-INF/classes

My Java Servlets use Oreilly's predefined classes and I use that so as not to reinvent the wheel.
Oreliiy's classses are avaliable as "cos.jar" file and when I unjar them I get following structure

I have stored this cos.jar file under "/local/tomcat/webapps/hari/WEB-INF/lib/" and "/local/tomcat/webapps/lib/"and have these on my CLASSPATH.

In my Java Servlets, I do following import
import com.oreilly.servlet.MultipartRequest;
import com.oreilly.servlet.*;

It compiles everything fine BUT when I run my WEB APPLICATION ( it gives my following ERRORS wonder why...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -

it from fulfilling this request.

Did you put your OReilly library on the path?
