When I start up tomcat 5.5.10-12 I am getting a ClassNotFoundException
for a custom class that implements Filter.  Under 5.5.9 and 5.5.1 the

another webapp.  If I move the class files in question to the
webapp/classes dir tomcat appears to be able to find it but then it
gives a NoClassDefError instead.  I read the FAQ and looked but I cannot
find another servlet.jar anywhere so I do not believe this is the
problem.  The filter class is defined in the web.xml file for the

I cannot find anything in the changelog from 5.5.10 and up that would
explain or even seem related to this.  I would appreciate any help I can
get at this point!
