The WEB-INF/lib directory is a protected directory so the client can't load 
the jar file for the applet, it has to go somewhere it is visible by the 
client side ie. in the webapp directory or a subdirectory off of it.

The jar files that go in WEB-INF/lib are met for use by Tomcat itself not an 
applet served on the client side.
