Do the Jars you have added contain the class com.itextpdf.text.pdf.PdfReader?

Where and how have you added the jars? They need to be in the WEB-INF/lib directory in your war file.

I guess you added all Jar files to class path so wen you execute the file using command prompt it executes successfully.

I think you have not added the jar files to the Project Library so when you excute it as a web app, it throws error. If you are using eclipse Right clcik on the project, Select Properties,Select Java Build Path, Select Libaray Tab and then add all the required libraries.
