in my jsp i have

and i have changed the commonStyle.css, however if I recompile or even restart the Tomcat server, it doesn't reflect the changes made in the .css. Even if I write the url of the .css in the browser, it always displays the old .css

I renamed the .css to commonStyle2.css, and my changes were visible on the page.

I've also deleted all the stuff in the "Work" directory (where stuff is cached) does anyone know why tomcat doesn't find the updated .css?

This has not a thing in the world to do with Tomcat. Your browser is caching the css file.
