Really strange. I guess Tomcat reads the WAR's manifest file and does 
not find a mentioned JAR. Can you assure that it is exactly the correct 
spelling of the JAR's name?

No, this page is really outdated as you can see. The installation is as 
easy as you did it and really similar for almost every servlet 
container, the page makes to many differents on them. Building a WAR, 
deploying it in webapps dir and solving the endorsed libs problem should 
be sufficient for every Tomcat version.
