im using JDK 1.4

<%@ page import="javax.telephony.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.Timer" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.TimerTask" %>
<%@ page import="Callback" %>
<%!
     class CounterTimerTask extends java.util.TimerTask {
        /**
        * Date format used in message.  Includes milliseconds.
        */

        public static final SimpleDateFormat FMT = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss.SSS aa");

        private String name;
        private Date sked;
        private Callback cb;

        public CounterTimerTask(String name, Date sked, Callback cb) {
           this.name = name;
           this.sked = sked;
           this.cb = cb;
        }

        public void run() {
           System.out.println("Starting " + name);
           System.out.println(FMT.format(sked) + " Thread " + name);

          try {
              cb.connect();
          } catch (Exception ex) {
              System.out.println("ERROR: " + ex.getMessage());
              return;
          }

          while(!cb.isDone()) {
              try {
                  Thread.sleep(500);
              } catch(Exception ex) {}
          }

          //cancel();

        }
     }
%>
<%
     Callback c = new Callback();
     c.setFirstLeg(request.getParameter("firstleg"));
     c.setSecondLeg(request.getParameter("secondleg"));
     String dateStr = request.getParameter("date");
     String timeStr = request.getParameter("time");

     java.text.SimpleDateFormat date_format = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss");
    Date sked = date_format.parse(dateStr + " " + timeStr);

     Timer timer = new Timer();
    TimerTask task = new CounterTimerTask("callback");
    timer.schedule(task, sked);
%>

This error is because of the server couldn't find tools.jar.
You need to have tools.jar in your classpath.
The tools.jar is located in {jdk path}/lib/
