I checked the archives and there was nothing that was suggested that 
I haven't already tried, so I thought I would send an e-mail.

I have just upgraded to jdk 1.3.1 and to Tomcat 3.3 and Ajpv13 and I 
can't get my packages to load correctly. All my code is in .jar files

(1.3) and it still fails. I moved all the .jar files around and still 
no luck. This ran without any problems under the old configuration. 
It's managing to load and run my BootServlet but won't load anything 
in the .jar that contains my package. I have checked and 
double-checked and the.jar is not corrupt. I have uploaded it 
numerous times, still no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas please?
