I am using linux to run tomcat and want to utilize org.JSON package. I downloaded the source code from I am unsure how to configure this external package so I can use it in my JSP files. I can't add it to my JAVA/etc bin because I do not have admin permission. Any simple solutions? Thanks!

Once you compile the classes, put the class files (with their proper directory structure) in the WEB-INF/classes directory of your application.

There are two ways to add it to your web application: as Ben says, add the *.class files to WEB-INF/classes (together with your own class files), or if it's in a JAR file, add the JAR file to WEB-INF/lib of your web application.
