That is not very helpful as a problem description.  What does not work ? How do you know 
that it does not work ? What appears in the logfiles ?
What does your webapp try to do with Jespa ?

If your purpose is only to authenticate the user of your webapp, you do not need a copy in
/opt/tomcat/lib/. That is probably a bad idea anyway.

Did you follow the steps in the Jespa manual, page 9, "Step 2: Test the Computer account 
with the Example Webapp" ?

Jespa is a commercial product, not a part of Tomcat (*).
Should you not be contacting the support at / for this ?

(*) This being said, it works fine with Tomcat for me, at multiple sites and since years.
