Yes, this is the place for Apache HTTPD questions, not Apache Tomcat

There's no reason it shouldn't be ignored, unless your app. has code
to fetch this parameter and tinker with its own CLASSPATH somehow.  I
don't believe that a servlet container is expected to care about some
context parameter that happens to be named "classpath".

It appears there's no way to do what you want to do; you'll have to
copy the relevant .class and/or .jar files into the app. (or ignore
advice and copy them into Tomcat's common /lib directory).  Yes,
that's crude and ugly.  See:
