Jain,

/shared/lib and /shared/classes do work in Tomcat 5.5.23. The problem
that Peter was experiencing is due to a specific advanced configuration,
where the webapp is being deployed by using a context.xml file.

When the app is deployed into webapps folder, as is the usual way,
everything is fine.

I have not tested and do not know if and why Peter's deployment
using context xml file behaves differently.


As far as I understand, the existence of /shared/lib is a requirement of
Servlet Spec. E.g. in Servlet Spec. 2.4 chapter SRV.9.7.1 we may read

"When a number of applications make use of the same code or resources, 
they will typically be installed as library files in the container.
(...)
The container must provide a directory for these libraries. The files
placed within this directory must be available across all Web applications.
The location of this directory is container-specific."

Konstantin.
