A) It's not WEB-INF\classes, it's WEB-INF/classes. A true WAR is a ZIP file, not a directory and you use DOS pathname separators at your peril, since Java would much rather interpret them as escape character.
B) You DO realize that if you don't put resources under WEB-INF, anyone who wants to can potentially retrieve them by URL (and in fact, WILL be able to, by default). Which is a potential security exploit.
C) What benefit is kludging up a custom classpath going to gain you here anyway?

Now, I'm trying ResourceBundleThemeSource with the Spring framework, but the problem is with the JVM.
