Is your "chat" directory in the standard webapp format? You jar files must go into chat/WEB-INF/libs folder.

If you want to access your application with this url: http://localhost:8080/chat/ chat must be a web application. It must be similar to this:

You must have a WEB-INF folder within chat folder. Within WEB-INF you must have a lib folder where you put any jar files that the app uses. All your java class files must go into WEB-INF/classes folder. Your index.html must be directly under chat folder.

Is it in this format?
