I'm using Tomcat 4.0.2 and I was having problems getting my JSP files to
compile. My classes were stored in WEB-INF/classes and I couldn't understand
why Tomcat was not finding them. Once I placed my classes in a package and
added the appropriate directory structure to the WEB-INF/classes directory
Tomcat was able to find my classes. In short, it appears that you can't place
a class directly into WEB-INF/classes.

Am I unique, or have others encountered this problem? Is this a bug in Tomcat?
I'm interested in hearing what others think.
