I suspect you have gotten the wrong idea about jar files. Java never "loads" a whole jar file, but selects class definitions as needed.
A typical Tomcat installation should have the class-loader-howto.html file in webapps/docs - this explains where Tomcat is allowed to look for library Jars.
Tomcat does NOT use your environment CLASSPATH.
