Not able to access BouncyCastle jar from Application jar

I have made jar file for my application. One of the class of my application uses BouncyCastleProvider class of BC jar.
I have created one folder "lib" in the same parent folder where my application jar is residing.
I have changed my machine CLASSPATH to point to this new lib folder. But when I run my application it gives me classnotfound exception.
But if I copy this BC jar file to my jre/lib/ext then everything works fine.
Can anybody tell me what I need to do to access BC jar file from my lib directory?
Thanks in Advance,

CLASSPATH needs to point to the jar file itself, not the directory it's in.
It is sorta covered in the
