Error running JSP

I am attempting to get a little JSP application set up, and I am having a problem. I have a button that executes (right word?) a java file. Or at least, it's supposed to. Instead, I get this error:

javax.servlet.ServletException: Servlet execution threw an exception
root cause
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/rpc/ServiceException
com.crn.hcsc.CRNSignon.doGet(CRNSignon.java:13)


I understand that in theory that means that my container can't fine that class. But if I look in my WEB-INF/lib folder, there it is, big as life:
crn\WEB-INF\lib\javax\xml\rpc

To add further confusion, everything works fine if I run this as a straight java application.

So confused...

the lib directory is for jar files.
Put the classes under WEB-INF/classes/{package}/{classes}

Hooray!
That worked, thanks so much for the quick reply. Wierd part is, I didn't put those class files in there, not entirely sure how they got there to start with, but it works now.

Peace

Andrew
