Try

C:\project1\src>javac -classpath tomcat/common/lib -d classes Ch1Servlet.java

Maybe I am wrong, but the jar file should be in the classpath, which is the one above; it probably should not be included in the classpath itself.

I could be wrong, but it's worth a try.

-classpath tomcat/common/lib


Seems you cannot just specify the directory that contains the required JAR files, but also with the name of JAR file.
