Check your Tomcat's server lib ($TOMCAT_HOME/server/lib) to make sure you
don't have any non-standard (not shipped with standard Tomcat) jars lying
there. If thats the case those jars will be loaded by the tomcat's
classloader and hence the jars and classes in web app won't be visible to
Just to make sure, try it out with a fresh installation of Tomcat. If it
works then the problem lies where I am suggesting.
