i have the same problem. But i don't think of it as a big problem, when you
need to put your classes in different directorys. Applets and Servlets are
two different things, so why shouldn't they have own jars with their own
location. To me, it's an advantage. I can change some things in the applet,
so why should this force a change in the Servlet jar's? 
Perhaps you can workaround this if it bothers you to much by messing around
with your applet-codebase and archive parameters.

Good luck!
