I haven't tried this, but maybe Tomcat has a problem recognizing the 
.zip extension.  zip and jar are interchangeable.  Maybe see if you can 
either rename it to or unzip it and re-package it with a 
.jar extension.  Then try putting it back in the lib/apps directory. 
 I've had the best luck with classloader and the apps directory with 
version 3.3.
