JAR files belong in the /lib directories.  If the contents of the JAR
file are required only by one web application, put in under the
application's /WEB-INF/lib directory.  If the contents of the JAR are
required by more than one app and you wish to share, put it in the
server's common/lib directory.

See the Servlet Specifications for complete details about the deployment
organization on the server.  See the Tomcat class loading documentation
for where the server looks for classes and in what order.

I hope this helps,
