Using Tomcat to run a .jar file

Can this be done? We've had no problems with .war files in tomcat 3 and 4, but I've got an app that uses .jar files. I've tried placing the .jar in the lib directory on tomcat 3, where it works on a PC version of tomcat 3, but with no success.

If I can, where do I put the .jar? How do I tell tomcat about it?

If not, is there some Apache solution to this?

OK, I've got a .jar working in tomcat 3, by placing it in <tomcat 3 root>/lib/apps

Any idea about tomcat 4? the /lib directory doesn't exist in 4...
