$CATALINA_BASE/shared/lib empty

Hello everyone,
in the Tomcat doc I read that a standard Tomcat 5 installation includes a variety of pre-installed shared library files, including:

* The Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 APIs that are fundamental to writing servlets and JavaServer Pages.

* An XML Parser compliant with the JAXP (version 1.2) APIs, so your application can perform DOM-based or SAX-based processing of XML documents.
Now, the point is in my folder E:\Programmi\Tomcat 5.5\shared\lib I don't see any files, that is it's empty.
Is that wrong? and why?
Thanks a lot

Check the $CATALINA_BASE/common/lib directory these files are stored there in my implementation of Tomcat 5.

For a discussion on common-lib versus shared-lib check

common versus shared lib.

For me this distinction is theoretical and I understand that Tomcat 6 doesn't have this distinction, but I don't have a lot of experience with Tomcat 6.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
