I would recommend putting the jar under WEB-INF/lib directory and then referencing the classes from you servlet import statements.

In addition, all classes that you place under the WEB-INF/classes directory are automatically added to your classpath
the same happens when you add jar files to your WEB-INF/lib directory.

Hi Ann
As explained before you can keep your jar file in WEB-INF\lib folder and import the required class in your file.

for tomcat and something general like a database driver put the .jar file in tomcat/commond/lib so that all your web applications can use it
