This is right.

Tomcat checks the webapplication/WEB-INF/classes directory for servlet classes.
Tomcat checks the webapplication/WEB-INF/lib directory for library files.
A users web browser will check any file under the webapplication directory 
that is not under the webapplication/WEB-INF directory that is specified in 
an applet.

Why do you want to place your classes and libraries outside of the WEB-INF
