Ahh, you're putting a jar file in WEB-INF/classes.  I missed that

Tomcat copies jars out of WEB-INF/lib into a work directory to prevent
locking and for performance gains.  But that's a server implementation
detail that shouldn't matter.  Putting jars in WEB-INF/classes, well,
I'm not going to spend time supporting this use-case, but maybe others

Good luck,
