After I did so, tomcat stops to work at all. Should I set some settings in
tomcat or what is wrong, does anybody know about it. The error that occures
is "java.lnag.NoSuchMethodException:

Only things I did are:
- in the common directory I've created "src" directory
- into the src dir I've copied all shared java-sourced classes
- i've compiled them into the common/classes directory
- i've copied some shared libaries into the common/lib
- i've removed whole directory webapps/MyApp/WEB-INF/classes/ (classes
direcotry is still presented, but it is almost empty -- except the
messageResources files -- these were leaved in the original space)
- i've restarted tomcat
- errors occures

Please can anybody help.

Thanks a lot
Best Regards
Honza S.
