Hi!

I'm using Oracle's JDevloper for writing programs, and deploying it to Tomcat. I have deployed a web application which is in package "aa.mypacakge". I have also written an encryption program, and this class "enc.class" will be accessed by anybody in our team. Even my program needs to access this class file.

So where should I place it in the Tomcat directory (on the server)? Is it in Tomcat\common\classes ? And how do I have to access it from my program which is calling this class ? Is it

import common.classes.enc;

Any help appreciated
Sara

If the classes are specific to your application, place them in the hierarchy rooted at WEB-INF/classes.

If you want them to be shared across all web apps (be sure that's what you want -- you will be unable to have separate apps use different versions of the classes if you share), place the classes in a jar file and place it in Tomcat's shared/lib folder.
