Problems deploying jar files in TOMCAT ver 5

I am having problems with deploying jar files in TOMCAT. I am using TOMACT version 5. I created a web application and copied a jar file into /WEB-INF/lib directory and restarted TOMCAT. The jar file is not getting deployed.

I came to know from some forums that problems like these exist only in older versions of TOMCAT (version 3). I am not able to understand why this exists in version 5 of TOMCAT.

Please clarify this.

What do you mean "the jars don't get deployed"?
You don't deploy a jar file.

What exactly are you trying to do?
