libraries not found!

I have developed a simple web application using spring with tiles. I have deployed the application on tomcat (5.5.17) however it gives me a HTTP Status 500! The exception seem to be related with a class not found:

However this library and class can be found in my War file under the WEB-INF folder.

Now I remember I had such a problem with JBoss as well, because JBoss was searching that library in the shared folder rather then the War File itself. Back then I just added jboss-web.xml with the following xml so that it loaded all required libraries from the WAR file and only load unfound libraries from the shared folder.

My question is; do I need to do something the same for Tomcat as well. Since the library he is complaining about can be found in the WAR file already!

Thanks and Regards,

My libraries can all be found in my War file. The War file name is myapp.war, and he libraries can be found in it like this:

myapp.war/WEB-INF/lib/<my other jar files>

I agree. Here's the link:
