Unable To Load Tag Handler Class

I've built a web application in Eclipse which uses a custom tag library. The tag handler classes have been added to a JAR which has subsequently been added to the project build path.

The JSP which uses these custom tags does not present any errors until runtime. I then receive the "Unable to load tag handler class" on translation.

I do not see the JAR in WEB-INF/lib or the class files in WEB-INF/classes in the Package Explorer view. Is this the problem? Is having the JAR on the build path not enough?

Thanks!

Better add the JAR file to the "lib" folder under WEB-INF.
