Problems with Custom valve for Tomcat

I'm attempting to use the example, RequestDumperFilter class from Tomcat 5.00.28 to create my own custom valve. I've defined the class within server.xml as follows:
<Valve className="com.myFilters.valves.RequestDumperFilter"/> The class file resides in Windows XP directory named CATALINA_HOME\server\claases\com\myFilters\valves.

Tomcat fails to start when the line's uncommented complaining the server cannot locate the class file. The real question, am I installing the calls in the correct directory? I searched for a reference on Tomcat website, but failed to find any. The book, Mastering Tomcat Dev mentions placing the file in the server/classes directory.

I agree. Here's the link:
